Love Poem

Bird-Understander


Of many reasons I love you here is one


the way you write me from the gate at the airport

so I can tell you everything will be alright


so you can tell me there is a bird

trapped in the terminal      all the people

ignoring it       because they do not know

what to do with it       except to leave it alone

until it scares itself to death


it makes you terribly terribly sad


You wish you could take the bird outside

and set it free or       (failing that)

call a bird-understander

to come help the bird


All you can do is notice the bird

and feel for the bird       and write

to tell me how language feels

impossibly useless


but you are wrong


You are a bird-understander

better than I could ever be

who make so many noises

and call them song


These are your own words

your way of noticing

and saying plainly

of not turning away

from hurt


you have offered them

to me       I am only

giving them back


if only I could show you

how very useless

they are not



To My Dear and Loving Husband


If ever two were one, then surely we.

If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.

If ever wife was happy in a man,

Compare with me, ye women, if you can.

I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,

Or all the riches that the East doth hold.

My love is such that rivers cannot quench,

Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.

Thy love is such I can no way repay;

The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.

Then while we live, in love let’s so persever,

That when we live no more, we may live ever.
