Our Bohemian Rhapsody (A Poem)

For the love
Of beads and trees
I climbed your knees and hips,
Our hand-grasp to humanity.

We sat alongside
The sycamores and elk,
Watched a meadow-full of clover
Bend into the wind
Their oceanic waves of green.

And tired of the sun,
We found shade amongst
The whispering shag of
a raspberry bush
Where we weaved bracelets
And wrote letters to Byron, then Keats.

Later, amongst the untouchable
Wild of dusk and firefly,
We laid upon the grass,
Hash between our fingers
And dreams between
The heartbeats of our ears,
Just listening.
