The Ballad of Our Hearts--By ayaz daryl nielsen--United States

The Ballad of Our Hearts

endowing and inhabiting
touching and melting
Two who have met
taking the world in hand
forgetting nothing
forgiving everything
Embellishing salt-sweetness
pouring love into poems
---
couldn’t settle down
always on the move
multi-lingual  
in the language
of loneliness
---
sky being so blue
deep green of the meadow grass
words begin to shine
word-stained garments of poets
as we walk upon this earth
