in the morning

in the morning I
awake
before you; the
smell of your sleep intoxicates
me, and
the gentle hum of your
breathing recalls the ebb and
flow of the night-tide.

I still live in that
picture,
when we spent all night on the
beach,
within reach of the tantalising
foam.
you were sleeping; I was kept
awake by the brightness of the
stars, like the spear-
points of a thousand warriors;

may some jealous
dark angel strike us
now,
since nothing could surpass this
beauty,
and I surely
dread what the future
holds.
