Chapter 1 – The River’s Edge

Did you ever stand at

The river’s edge

My love, and were you alone?

Stars shine brightest in winter’s

Forbidden season

My fire burns them.

And may I help you trim

The olive tree

Before the smoke drifts

Into spring again.

I will miss you

When you have gone away

Into a misty future.

Be with me now

There is no time

To say forever.

Make my day
