You put me in the field of the long blue grass
And you stayed on the perimeter
I could barely see you
Only shards of you could I see
Through the tall stalks of the field
Breaking the picture of you into lines
Here and there
Like the sun through a fence
Flickering as it's passed fast
In a car staring out
Longing for more
Don't set just yet!
I want to feel the touch
Of your bent crooked soft hands!
Of your feather soft white hair!
Of your fragile soft frame holding- me!
But it was blue in the moonlight.
And I curled over
Became a static blue statue
I want to stay with you!
Like the moon at night
Lighting the way
Just too far to lasso
To pull closer to you
Pastel blue love.
But I saw the lavender!
Lovely lavender seeped from your side
Like a wound
I picked the lavender
Like corn from it's stalk
And it glowed
And lit my way-
Still lights my way
Carry it by my breast-
My lavender Cross-
Till it becomes me too
And I shine like you
Out of the blue
Afraid we would not see your colours
You stayed blue to us
On the perimeter
But looking with eyes of lavender
Wrapping me up in your lavender gaze
With your imaginary lavender kisses
How I wish I could dance & smile
And stay a while in your lovely
