Is your heart stable? Your thoughts are safe?
Your beauty is same?
Who is that fell through your eyes to your thoughts?
What was his art? How it happened with all the other girls and other friends around?
In that midst what happened? How became? What felt.
He told he knew me. He made me sit and steadied me.
I try to dance. He knew to see me dance,
And the sound of my anklets and bangles.
He knew to picture me against the green mountains. He wrote prose on me.
He wrote poetry on me. He wrote so much characterising me. Is he known to me sufficiently?
He knew words, also words lyrical, then musicality. Not just that far.
He knew to choose and fairly tell the just conduct. Is not that the highest intelligence.
