raven hair

where have you been all these lonely years,
my raven haired rose?
finally i see the beauty of myself,
of you under starlight
i wish i understood the power inside
and all the countless nights
in other people’s dreams
my magnificent mermaid (if you would
feel so inclined to be mine)
never let the feeling go, keep it with you
one day i will move on
packing up my summer clothes and
wishing i was already gone
your tears, i could bear to see from
your brave brown eyes, but i want to see
sleep now, precious child of the earth,
and dream of a dionysus celebration
women: drunk, naked, dancing amid the trees
i will be there
