Before I Go

Before I go
And spread my wings-
To catch this updraft and fly-
Please know that all I wish
Is for one day and one night
In humble peace.

I will wait by the glassy Lake Sanabria-
The one hidden in the hills-
For the sun to run and slide
Behind the moon as it stands proud
In the tawny summer night sky.

Could delay my departure-
Except for this ignorant lion-
Sitting in deep thought with his rich mane of gold
For me to attempt to take leave
In the dwindling hours of the dark.

The swish of my silk sundress-
The beautiful tangle of brilliant fabric-
Masking my fleeting hesitation
As I make the definitive decision
Like the earth of the summer beneath.
