Stay a While

I went out to the green sunlit hills to melt the freeze crawling through my chest
And there amidst a sunlit green apple grove
A robin's birdsong drew me toward a nest
And when, by the trance of the crickets' evening chants
I approached it in my simple stride
'Could you stay a while?' the robin whispered through its eyes

And then as a half-moon rose on the pristine summer sky
A shooting star streaked with a gleam
And with a shifting in the shadows in the apple grove below
The spell of magic swelled, and as if a dream
The robin- it transfigured into a glowing human form
A woman's face, dazzling ear to ear
'Could you stay a while?' I said, but in thin air she disappeared

And so as the tick of time grates through heavy days
And hollow seasons turn to hollow years
If someday I should cross her path
Up wandering through the hills, or singing peacefully on a sunlit field
With scarlet joy I'd take her hands and dance and sing and laugh
And sailing high on a summer breeze, cool and clear
'Could you stay a while?' she'd whisper in my ear
