96. Poetry Exchange

An almost-haiku regarding pantaloon
-- see Post 91. A Pantaloon (for Shane)

The bed, warm and soft
the rain outside, cold and hard
turn around and sleep.

A Rubáiyát for Isagel

with you beside me oh my dear
the wind and rain can bring no fear
now let you soft and safely sleep
the morning calm is drawing near.

A Rubáiyát (?) for dedalus

Come, be still and let us sleep in
on crumpled sheets, in morning din
our bed an island, far at sea
like soft waves the noise rush in
