I have walked and studied and smiled the length and breadth of you and I,
‘we work well together’ some interested observer may say of us,
our work is joy, it stems from beauty’s place in our souls,
we swim in the same warm seas and we dive in joy to the same depths,
I am blessed by you and your words and your fierce attention and devotion,
your devotion to your words, your expression of your poetic drive,
and above all, your sharing this path in Beauty’s life and soothing waters.
