With Arms of Light Enfold

Across the border bathed in brightest light,
In clear and northern air your arms outstretch,
I stand in breathless wait,
In captivated gaze,
I hold this moment still and calm,
And then between the you and I,
The ease of trust descends,
Two worlds collide with touchless tenderness,
Too faint far words remote convey,
To be this simple pleasure pleased,
To stay at early dawn and dew,
Your morning gentle fresh,
This clear and warmth of you,
Your open arms of light enfold

Love, like the sunrise, is far from the world of trade.
