One Day He will Know Love

Looking out through a dark turret window

a lady waits for her love

they have never met tis true

she knows when he’s near

her heart will leap

their lips will meet

***

She sighs another day has passed

when will he come?

she grows faint with waiting

what if the heart of my heart

has met misfortune

or worse death?

***

A tear falls as she listens

then … it comes in the wind of the moon

faint clip clop of a strong steed

carrying a weary but stalwart master

“He is wounded” she strains to neigh

“Who will bear the sickness away?”

***

The lady hears the call

prepared with hands of healing

she readies a room

where he will gain strength

one day he will know love here

their eyes plumbing depths of  feeling
