Sweet Friend


Do I belie my nature to try, again and again,
To strike fire in this hurricane wind,
Citing a wish to warm sodden bones,
Sweet friend?

Seasons might cycle 'fore storm's end,
And sunlight, freely, shines to bright the dim,
Still I succumb to blessed rythm;
Heart-beats din:

Always lying beyond yonder bend,
Some blaze to burgeon new will for wind--
Warmth enough to weather night,
And dissuade sin.
