(A Love Song)What is it, that is not burned by the sun,
Or touched by the rain?
For it exists, not in the out­ward parts,
But inside the spirit of men.

That place into which death can­not whis­per,
And has no charge,
It nei­ther thirsts,
Nor does it feel the pains of
Hunger.
And the wise ones would say,
It’s not in the heart, which
May fail in its small lodge,
But in the intri­cate fab­ric,
Of men.
It is frag­ile, at the same time,
Strong as the South­ern winds.

When you are at my side
All, that exists above my head,
And below my feet.
Becomes almost innocu­ous in its
Exis­tence.

And, I give thanks to the Cre­ator
For it is He, who has led your feet,
Into my path, and your hand into my hand,
And your eyes into my eyes.
For that great thing of which I speak is
Love.
Haly Eagle
