And this, for my beloved….

Dawn’s promising skies

Petals from a pool drifting

Imagine these in one pair of eyes

And this was my beloved

Strange spice from the south

Honey through the comb sifting

Imagine these on one eager mouth

And this was my beloved

And when she spoke and when she talked to me

Music! Mystery!

And when she moved And when she walked with me

Paradise came suddenly near

All that could stir All that could stun

All ’twas for my heart’s lifting, now aching…

Imagine these in one perfect one

And this was my beloved

Now this is my beloved

(adapted from the musical “Kismet” by Robert Wright and George Forrest)
