Sonnet (To His Lover)
Expel your soul as though it were a sigh
And turn each mirror round to face the wall.
Anoint your head with oils and flowers dry
And let these fingers ease your deathly pall.
Now cool your burning throat and fevered brow
And clutch a ros'ry dearly 'twixt your palms.
Allow your paling lips no lasting frown
And close your ears to tearful keening psalms.
Now let your heart lie still within your chest
And let your eyelids gently drift and close.
Let not your brain deter you from your rest
But mute its cries and fall into repose.
My love is greater than this world can hold
So let us meet beyond this earthly fold.
