She looks into his heart’s depths

Lesser_Ury_Märkischer_See_am_Abend

To look through your eyes,

Down through the shifting clouds of green,

To find the bright unchanging centre,

Beating with the heart’s steady pulse.

To touch the warm waves that flow,

Dolphin-leaping from that deep sea,

Delve into the storeroom of your richest treasures

And see in the silver water mirror

A reflection of my smiling face.
