Precious Cargo in my Dreams


Precious Cargo In My Dreams


I'd carry you


through ice and snow


your kit snug


across my back;


your rope pulled


across my shoulder pack


And should rivers meet


And tips of a dike unfold-


I's pull you across


the rivers' road;


My glacial hands and feet holding


the rivers' crossing


where they meet


I'd carry you;


My sweet cargo


"till I knew, Captain,


you were safe


'tho snares of wolves


And sorry baits


Begged


At my back;


I'd push on.


I'd carry you Still;


Dreaming Strong


Of Love on hold


Frozen


To my gait


Of Dreams


And Child ther


At my Wait:


my Libido


frozen solid


To my back;


As through frozen wood


I'd hack


And push my weight


And saw and haw


"till you were safe.
