I wish

I wish that someday the love you yearn for
Will come to you softly
As the sweep of pink-cloud sky
To the fall of velvet curtain
From the rim of evening to blanket
The dreaming grass.

I wish that someday the love you seek
Will come to you sharp-edged
As sun-cast lozenges of gold and shadow
Upon the earth, the slantwise glitter
That limns the leaves.

I wish that someday love will surprise you
Coming upon you unexpected
Like the swoop of a woodpecker
Crimson-headed across your path
As within your heart a window opens
And sunlight streams in.
