Thunder and lightning tremble and sound
Rain pours down and soaks the ground
It suddenly starts and quietly finishes
Leaving only a fuchsia sky that slowly diminishes

“After John Donne's 'The Good-Morrow' ''
Just what before we met did we ever do?
Before the rising sun our eyes awoke
In ignorance of each others' fate
Must our hearts have merely slept?
Though the world seemed larger then than just we two
And of voyages foreign both East and West seemed necessitie
Chimeras of Love's quest in vain embraced
All dreams would end in rude awake
When the edge of every map I'd soundings make
Another terra incognita always did come into view
So now in your eyes alone is all the world's expanse I see
Worth more than jewelled mine or lustful emperie
'Cause with you there's no more discoverie
Just two souls in kindred harmony
By John Edwards
