puzzling song you sing

Jim Ferguson

puzzling song you sing

of perfection

i’m puzzled
by the puzzle
of your song

i do not
your charming rhythms

nor the fact
that my
receptive heart

chimes in time
with your
vibrant music

and gapes
in apprehension
on your beauty

melodic pulse
of tender strength
and yearning

to soar within
the echo
of your tune

to join with you
ecstatic and erotic
in shrouded mists

in love-lust
for all time

how badly
i do love
the far-warm song you sing
