OF LOVE SUSTAINED [New York City, 04/25/81]

(To Nancy in a Delayed Greyhound Bus)


How sluggish do the minutes trickle by!

Why, every moment seems to hesitate

Adjourn its reckless sojourn and deny

That next succeeding moments consummate

The trivial glory of their precious prime!

Yet boredom would not even dare impose

Its wrathful claim on unapportioned time;

Nor patience need recruit and hint propose

On the clock's chore to venture intervene

And hasten your arrival's joy proclaim

No floodgates can love's rapture's flood restrain

When you in treasured nearness grace my dream:

That you will come is all I need to know;

And knowing thus makes waiting pleasure true!!!
