Love comes home to roost

Love comes home to roost

This was thought
           where the table is laid
love lasts
           in rooms where shadows
do not linger
           love lasts
there is no change
           and words are true
and tender
           and the action is wide
beyond walls
           and through many doors

Love comes home to roost
           feeds under the same roof
sleeps beneath the known stars
           trusts in the belief
that love lasts
           a sparrow that never
changes its tune
           that keeps no secret
tucked away in drawers
           that fearlessly permits
light and darkness
           to enter through windows
because love reveals all
           and never flinches
in the throes of life—
           all this was thought
