I hadn’t yet seen your face, but it was You…

October saw you shadow-side first;

That is how it was known to be you

Because there You were, full, full

And still properly to sun, at all.


From this shade of the winter solstice

approach, Had glimpses of your greater

summer, Beaming from the sides of an

equatorial curtain teasing forth.


So, it had to come as no surprise when

The grasses of June stood plated green

Which stirred by the gold fields of July

Were laid bare in the sands of August:


Stayed in wait of your sunniest embrace

Seen it clear in its half-year absence

Because it was You there, full and full

Now turn around and light it all up.
