Nightingale
unknown

This is the world. There is no other.
 1
This is the Law of the stars,
 2
and the humility of night-
 3
The red veins in the ivy,
 4
the metaphor of sleep's ocean-
 5
We will live forever,
 6
like youthful children
 7
kissing golden goblets,
 8
enraptured in the hollows of each other's dream.
 9
You are the flesh of my soul, as I was borne
 10
out of your body.
 11
Eternity is a state of mind.
