Three Loves




Which will you choose?

Angel-love . . . golden-yellow and far white . . .

Fairy-love . . . golden yellow and green . . .

Wave-love . . . scarlet and azure blue . . .

Which will you choose?

I will keep them in a box

Locked with a twisted key.

I will give them to people who need love,

I will let them choose.

Fairy-love blows away like leaves.

Angels I know little about.

For myself I choose wave-love

Because of the wind and the sea and my heart.
