Bound for glory

Bound for glory

That we are made of light
           this explains your beauty
your rich red handsome blood
           housed in the flesh
turns of phrase on the tongue
           words of love
and the delight in your eyes
           nothing more naked
more wholesome nor
           more complete than love

It’s in our nature
           to shine
to glow
           to tremble with excitement
to be among all other things
           tender and warm
and clear and unwavering
           in our heart’s purpose
scrupulous with every kiss
           our bones bound for glory

John Lyons
