He whispered ‘Do you know
how I love you?’ She begged
him to say. He conjured magic,
spoke of stars and the
beauty of her eyes, formed
palaces and landscapes,
majestic birds and enchanted
beasts, placed diamonds in
her hands, sapphires in
her soul; so he told her
his wonder, so he told
her his love.

She whispered ‘Do you know
how I love you?’ He begged
her to say. No words came
from her lips. Swiftly
she moved towards him
and, drawing him to her,
held him in her kiss.
