Sparrow's Nest
by Faye

speak again.
i beg you.
oh that you could know how
the elixir of your voice
soothes my soul's desire.

You vagabond.
You prince among men.
The coronation of your love
has ruined me for any other.

who would have thought
that on your waking with only
one question I would be betrothed
to you forever!?

My spoken vows
Are answered in kind by
Your sweetest confession
"But why is the rum gone?"
