The Good News
So softly cooed the darling dove who perched upon my sill
to sing of how the ages in the pages served to spill
winged words that gave some men their flight
to bring the joyous news
to nations knowing not of need in deeds that form their dues.
“Dear darling dove, of such a love, how must I know the book
of which you sing, as if to bring, new eyes through which to look?”
The darling dove, of such a love, flew out and placed by me,
a branch of which I’d always passed, so that my heart might see
how such a vine could salve my eyes, to watch the wash of hues
of what’s it’s like to come undone so that you feel your fuse.
