Variation

Though I live
in the shadow
of your light
my flesh does not
grow dim

The days grind
down the hours
but in your life
roses and gladioli
and orchids abound

and autumn holds 
no mystery
as music sustains
your breath
each noted syllable
a joy

your song has many voices
your voice many songs
but all that issues
from your lips
is love
