On the Beach at Night Together

On the beach at night together

The lovers, neither modest nor young, sing with their hearts to the darkness

As one looks at the stars, the other the reflection of the moon on the water

And I consider the broken, un-rhyming verses of my favorite poets, long dead

Who before my birth learned the secret to cleave soul from body, and possibly, to see the face of God
