NOVEMBER SONG by Shay
I had a blue-eyed love –
In the heart of winter, we’d meet;
Crystal snow spread across our bed,
And river ice beneath.
I’m reminded by the cold and leaden sky –
My blue-eyed love and I.
I had a green-eyed love –
In the heart of summer, we’d meet;
Lillies spread across our bed,
And drowning depths beneath.
I’m reminded by unforgiving July –
My green-eyed love and I.
I had a black-eyed love –
In the heart of Autumn we’d meet;
Wind blows leaves spread across our bed,
And only the earth beneath.
(?) the desire that lives nor dies –
My black-eyed love and I.I think I only missed one word in trying to transcribe this beautiful poem by Shay. If you have seen her work before you know that she is a gifted and talented poet who reaches inside her soul for the beauty of this work. Now I own this copy in the poet's own hand.
Doreen blessed me with two pages of her art and I could not be more thrilled. It wears me out just to try to imagine how much time this intricate work take her.
