In Your Eyes
By Leon Herald
From “A Trifoliate”
To M. H.

NEVER before did I dare
To look in your eyes.
To see one’s self
In love’s mystic eyes
Is leading        5
Life in Paradise.
(Creator dreamed
And looked deep in space.
Then Being, the grace of His dream,
Began to evolve.        10
Thus He became famous,
And God is His name.)
When the light from my eyes
Falls in yours,
Immortal songs will take course—        15
Tuneful songs, the grace of my dreams.
