The Lion. The Lioness

Come to me.

Come to me like the river's roar,

like ravens at the morning's door.

There's no knock;

no bronzed lion to pound and wake,

just yawning dawns; the lush daybreaks

opening

like sunrise. I, your troubadour

will sing across your kitchen floor;

enough warmth

to stay the dark; to overtake

each fear, each tear the wicked make

slip your cheeks.

Let my arms be your sacred shore;

may loneness haunt you nevermore.

I, the flawed,

give you my sovereign heart to take--

each bounty, glory, each mistake

forgiven;

clasping hands through destiny's door.

Let us be fearless. Let us roar.
