Anima Song

Simon Howes

Rich and dark, with flickering gold leaf inside,

Like sunlight on water.


All my life, I've waited for you to unhide,

Wife, lover and daughter.

So fine,

With beautiful eyes,

Enticing me onto you all of the time.


And here we stand, two of us,

Both in our eyes,

And I enter into you,


Like blackberry wine.
