You Have Such Power

You have such power to open so my mouth,
And with your lover’s wand turn words to birds
That, flying, flying, flying ever south,
Intend themselves to change again to words
And in your tender ears to softly say,
“Magician mine, now spell me joyous curse,
That I may swear, “You are my universe!”
Then fly I will forever round you there,
A breeze to scent your breath, caress your hair,
Or fall, all quietness, while you piano play.
You have such beauty’s might to murmur
Winning force of love’s maturity,
Where spell “infatuation” knows but cease,
And graduated passion’s warm as peace.
