Delight

 

If I was asked to write about delight

On an unusual surface

Linked to what I love

 

I would write with song upon the sky

Coloured notes of joy

For the sun, moon and stars

 

I would write with light on the dark

Curly fur of my dog

My joy and pure delight

 

I would write with love on the heart

Of my dear beloved

Thank you darling thank you

 

I would write with the palm of my hand

Love on the fissured bark

Of the oak in winter sleep

 

I would write with my feet on the earth

Impressing soft spongy moss

With a prayer of joy

 

If I was asked to write about delight

On an unusual surface

I could only write in love
