Engima variations

Engima variations

What lies at the heart of love
           variations of the enigma
what draws one to another
           deeply and in constancy
It’s neither a word
           nor a series of words
but a manner of being
           just as a rose is what it is
and we know it instantly
           so too love is apprehended
in its existence
           It is not an appetite
nor a dream but as real
           as the rose or the waters
that rise upriver
           in the Vale of Avoca
a multicoloured raiment
           spun from the purest silk
