The Crotchet Rest

I loved you in harmony, for Tianna was my witness.


You and I

Our unison equivocal

Bathed in the gaze,

Of a time-altering musical,


My darling dear,

A whole octave lower,

Aged faster than I,

My religious-care slower,


Yet, here we are,

Both adorned in our gold;

Hearts declaring words

That were then written in old,


Those sirens of praise

Are tumbling from sweet mouths,

Not in murmur-tones-

If only that were allowed!

The End
