Out Of The Shade

Out of the shade you came, a strong flower,
Brightest of all I’d ever seen,
Hair like golden flags at play
About a face more May than May,
All in a dress of yellow green,
Out of the shade.

Breath comes fast and heartbeats drum;
You, I know, are my life’s sum,
But my mouth is stricken dumb,
Feet are still and hands are numb;
Still, you see!

Flower winding round my hands
Pulls me into shadow-lands,
Winding arms with soft commands
Only twilight understands;
All, for me!

Here in the shade we close, a close flower,
Rarest of all that’s ever been!
Eyes like golden coins so bright
Day, though gone, there is no night!
All this hoped, yet unforeseen,
Here in the shade.
