In The Sweetness Of Summer

I love to read and write

Upon a star at night

In Paraguay, or wherever the spirit

Bites and feels good.


It is the Southern Hemisphere,

Everything hangs the other way up,

And the moon is bluer and clearer green,

As my imagination wants.


And the girls are different, some like fire,

Unselfconscious in warm looks,

Gorgeous in dark shapely freedom,

Spirits of another universe.


My deepest and most naive belief

Is that we are all brothers and sisters

In this world:  that is my Socialism,

This is my basis for thought.


O so delicately dreams can spin

A wonderment like the fine silk

Of fairies` wings that gently ply,

Flying queens in midnight`s air.


And we move step after step, there

Towards that which must be, there

Enveloping ourselves and the world around

In the musical colours of our dreams.
