Towards the Forest II

Robinby Robyn D. Hogg09 Jul 2013

It rains. It rains. Oh how it rains!
Within my arms I shelter you.
So full I burst and ask in shame,
'Dear, from harm do hold me too.'

Heads kissing, bodies clinging,
Feel my toil to make it grow.
Our silent words give no more grief,
As the truth you fear has stopped its flow.

So bury it all. Smother its cry,
Let it feed these oaks and pines.
For they will do
What you have declined.
