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


At my back;

I'd push on.

I'd carry you Still;

Dreaming Strong

Of Love on hold


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.
