Immortal for a day

19.-Unknown-Artist---Japanese-Lovers,-19th-Century

Easy the casual encounter

In the blanket of circumstance

Nothing is forbidden or forgiven

The stolen hour

Of fleeting acquaintance

Eyes filled with dust

Blind to all fault or frailty

The ebb and flow of time

Leaves ripples

Like the pattern lovers make

In the moment of discovery

Naked in innocence

Idle in the afternoon sun

Indolent from amorous cause

Destined to live in the memory

As a friend that never faltered

Immortal for a day

  1. Eternal. Brilliantly recorded gets the emotion so high in a soft calming art of some oracle chant
