come like a dream
on tiptoes
come like a sudden shower on a summer afternoon
come at dusk when the sun has to set
come as some faraway bells sound sadly sometimes
outside my window
like the roar of a train at dawn come
like the wind at night
come with the incessant tread of hooves
like the violence of violets
come without smile or promises
come with your long hair undone
with bare feet with one anklet only
surprise yourself
come once
