Your eyes glint in the firelight,
turned to violet by the flames.
I could fall into them; they seem so deep.
I know that you won't let me fall,
but catch me in your arms
as though I were a mere wisp,
insubstantial as the bits of fog that
even now are chasing each other across the grass
Our fire is banked against the wind.
I am as snug as a babe;
held close, kept warm
within the haven of your love.
Now your eyes reflect another light;
by starlight they are a deeper hue.
Iíve seen them look as cold as ice;
but ever when your gaze meets mine
they are a sea-toned blue,
and dance and wink and glow like starshine.
