Bacchus and Ariadne

A glass of ruby wine, a god in love His woman that they left alone to die Upon an island, abandoned by man

To a Poet’s Love

Do you recall that day the day a poet fell in love and you knew

Sonnet of Pan

He plays his flute where forest and glade meet Songs of love and they come on dancing feet From the rivers and from the distant seas


As twilight shadows dissolve in the sand And echoes of day drift out to the sea Your lips flutter on the palm of my hand


The pleasure of feeding your hunger and need In your moment of want and sensual greed With her mind floating on your unclipped wings
