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
