Poet and lover

The poet and the lover
are never idlebetween
thoughts
and feelings

there may be a short

rest from time to time
just as in a musical score
the pregnant pause—one
is or one isn’t—just

as one does Words moved
by
the heart and mind

the dance of syllables
on the tip of the tongue

John Lyons
