"I Am The House"
Words by John Beaton
Music by Laura Cortese
I am the house, the beach, the barn, the grove
that holds you still—the place you first made love.
I held you when a kiss led to caresses
as tender as an April fiddlehead
uncurling in the woods. When fall undresses
the birch and hazel we will still be wed.
I bore you when your heartbeat and your breathing
galloped, hooves on the wind, out of the trees
across a meadowland of bulbs unsheathing
flower-stems that lilted in the breeze.
The petals fell. You lay on me while feeling
settled like a dew on bracken fronds;
you saw, below my sky or stars or ceiling,
the droplets shine like rose-cut diamonds.
Loading more stuff…
Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
