FLOWERS OF TIME

 

Outlines of bare feet

Lilies in the valley

Weather worn rocks

Rose bushes and briars

 

A babbling stream

Of two voices small

In great hallow halls

Great wooden doors

 

Open to the great blue sky

Drifting white clouds

Wet green grass

Out of the rich dark earth

 

A lined leather hand

Caresses the wind

A lined leather face

Reflects in still water

 

Loose hair flying

Caressed by the wind

Soft oval eyes

Seen in the heart of the rose

 

On bare feet they stand

Hand holding hand

Bare brown backs

Turned to the sun

 

Lilies of the valley

Rose bushes and briars

Heart holding heart they walk

Through the flowers of time
