Delay
To find you in my thoughts, though now estranged,
Perhaps could have destroyed my last defense;
But eyes and scent remain in eloquence,
Still spinning through my dreams as though deranged―
And something of our partnership has changed,
Or may, perhaps, be only hope's pretense
To keep my heart bound tightly in suspense―
An unkind jest that unkind fate arranged.
A smile, a turn of head, a breath of air;
An orchid blossom resting in your hand;
Invisible, its petals hypnotize,
And beckon me to you all unaware―
Yet I forbear; perforce I understand
The time for chance is not yet in your eyes.
