A Valentine for Thomas Traherne

Elizabeth Knies

How good it is to Feel

    when darkness fades and you are well.

Your jesterís cap take down, your Self,

    long ribbons fluttering out to bells

with your love Love awaking.


It is ever and Forever,

    let it not be hidden, not forsaken.

It is the music you surprise,

    the delight of your eyes, your very Reason,

your banneret, your foolscap, your reply.



February 2007
