Excerpt from THE LOVE TREE:

WHERE THE WAVES BREAK

You take me
where the waves break,
where the church bells toll,
where the gulls squawk
and the thunder claps roll.

You take me
to the ship’s stern,
to the storm’s red eye,
to the dog’s bark,
and the wind swept sky.

You take me
from the dark hour,
from the hammer’s head,
from the cold sweats,
and the tempest’s bed.

You take me
like a fresh breath
with a twinkle eye,
with your chin up
and your softest sigh,
you take me—
you take me
In.

    The grumpy man with a magnificent grasp of poetic rhythm. I love the traditional romantic tone here, and imagine how you stand to watch the waves brea. Thanks Richard
