More on love

 
Still on the theme of love (must be the time of year), here's one I wrote when I took part in a Wintereisse recital during a Schubertiade weekend at Rhosygilwen.




When

When the sun rises over frosted hills,
when glaciers thaw,
when frozen streams flow again,
and spring flowers open;
when the birds sing
and fly free;
when I stand on the frozen beach,
when I travel across the cool sea;
when the south wind fills my sails,
when music follows on the breeze,
when moonlight shows the way
to friendlier oceans;
when the stars guide my soul
to warmer shores,
when I find you there,
then, only then, will my heart melt.

Love, again


Love

In the still quiet centre of you
are all the mountains and valleys,
all the streams, rivers,
peaceful lakes and raging oceans,
all the forests and plains of this Earth.

In the still quiet centre of you
are the sun and moon
and all the planets and stars
of the universe forever.

In the still quiet centre of you
is all the love there ever was
in all the world through all time.

In the still quiet centre of you
is all the power you ever need.
