Let Us

One day, beloved,
Let’s measure the path
From sand to sky,
From moonbeam to sun-ray,
From shark-fin to eagle-crest.

Let’s hold each other
By our little fingers, and
Dream together
Till the gripe water
From our babyhoods blend.

Let’s lie on our backs
On sawdust, counting
The feathers on each pink
Let’s lie on our faces
On a whale-back fountain,
Waltzing, for a change,
With our eyelashes.

Let us.
