I had some good days as a child.
There was a greed for magic!, undispelled
by bad instinct
and married
to its own foolish innocence.

In Carolina the days are mild.
And though the song of the world is tragic, love has welled
up in what love has carried

…what my lover paints
and what I in words reflect.
A valley of golden saints
where angels tarried
in the smiles and tears

brought by a golden song.
I hope we reach a happy end
and I say
“I knew it all along…”
