Happy birthday my dearest hildigard_brown
I hope you're having a wonderful day with things and people you love and you like!
Thank you so much for your wonderful works, your beautiful words and your friendship.
Unfortunately there was no time to write something myself, but I've chosen one of my favourite poems for you.
I hope you'll enjoy it!
Come to me in the silence of the night;
Come in the speaking silence of a dream;
Come with soft rounded cheeks and eyes as bright
As sunlight on a stream;
Come back in tears,
O memory, hope, love of finished years.
Oh dream how sweet, too sweet, too bitter-sweet,
Whose wakening should have been in Paradise,
Where souls brim-full of love abide and meet;
Where thirsting longing eyes
Watch the slow door
That opening, letting in, lets out no more.
Yet come to me in dreams, that I may live
My very life again though cold in death:
Come back to me in dreams, that I may give
Pulse for pulse, breath for breath:
Speak low, lean low,
As long ago, my love, how long ago.
