Anyplace


You anyplace me in your heart
             where patience waits
                   to hear love start

                             its concert

                   throbbing
          through

     your

blood

(((emotions r o l l i n g(((

holy f l o o d :

                        you carry me

                        past metaphors.

Restore me
    toward your gleaming shores,
    beloved country:
 

    'tis of she,
    the sweetest kiss of liberty:
 

        to thee

        me

        bring.
 

Hands
--there our dreams

confide.

 

Sands
where no seams
divide.
 

If anyplace

is love

,my bride,
please
wear

this

ring.
