Tenderness We Bestow


Tenderness We Bestow
Written: Maxima

Woven into
A winking star
Live wild hair in the night, and
You are taking me.
Tenderness we bestow
The lower lip
Is the most beautiful
From whose music
Sprouts a new flower.
I love this world
Heat, light and joy.
Dream high cams
A hug from a firm grip
Whew –
Whistle, whistling, as
A cheerful dweller
In the moonlight
Singing out loud.
All the night I seem like
A chained figure
Seeking solace
In the warm bosom of
The maiden, to
Transfigure the joy
Of thy heart
Into a glow in beautiful eyes.

    “Transfigure the joy / Of thy heart / Into a glow in beautiful eyes” – tenderness beneath the honesty ..
