I trust you
At least I feel like I do
Once I learned your name
You’re a dear in my meadow
As one does on a night like this
Graze as long as you’d like
You’re safe here something special
As though that word means anything
Of note to you or to me
I’ll practice your name with mine
Ahead and after all this
Before and bottled up near the end
Your favorite flower a daffodil
Yellow as the curry from the first date
Dark and stormy full of light
What would you cultivate
If you spent the time
Right as rain and pesticide
Make for me a home
Even if the water is rotten upstream
