THE GIFT

You sing to me of Spring -- scented with daffodils… and vaguely… innocence?

You laugh -- liquid bells chiming on a golden breeze… and I am lost, though I care not.

“A simple gift”, you say, “offered none before.”

I look. It is perfection itself, limned in sun, moon or firelight – I cannot tell. I want to touch it, embrace it. (Or does it want to touch me, embrace me?)

“It is love”, you whisper, “robed in glorious, benevolent might.”

But I see only death.

I hold my breath… poised on the threshold.

For I know…

I must accept.
