I will sleep all night in your arms Then whilst the day is dawning We will wake and gaze out to sea And together Welcome back the morning
We’ll watch as the seagulls broil and fuss As they dart over the incoming tide Hear the call of the geese Soaring over the breaking waves Their stately beating wings Presaging their arrival Their fervour undiminished As they return to the seagrass The meadows of their dreams To feed and live on
Such images reveal to me Confirm my heart’s content That life and nature exist Perhaps their sole purpose To ratify love For each other For humanity Love for nature And for all of creation
