Velvet Curtain

from by O'er Field and Stream



One velvet curtain hides the door
Behind, a starry scene unfolds
Dark clouds come near,
Hold high till light
Strikes each the cloak of dark and still

One golden locket clasped above
Held tight and kept near to embrace
Eyes cast to heaven
Through windswept meadows
Fair pinholes radiate above

Just the thought of being near you
For a minute makes me smile
Our sweet children are the blessings
My grandmother mentioned
Though we’ve been together
Over 10 years, it only feels like a blink

Cross deep and bustling river when
The words awoke me from dark and dim
Stark, crooked light beams creep through the blinds
Up before the winds and the birds can sing
These are the winds that blow from the east
Hear how they push and twist the leaves
These are the eyes that I wished to close
These are the words that I held to
