COME, MAIDEN

     1.

Lay on this pillow,
lay your hips on these silk sheets
you came on impulse,
to be pampered and cradled
you, the star of my night,
     
     2.

Who is this man who loves me so?
offering wine, candles, and bright eyes?
i will return to his bed,
this bear of a man

     3.

i followed my heart
and found joy
upon coming

— Abraham Menashe
