Because I Love

Texture of life

Love Poem

By Kathleen Raine

Because I love

There is an invisible way across the sky,

Birds travel by that way, the sun and moon

And all the stars travel that path by night

Because I love

There is a river flowing all night long.

Because I love

All night the river flows into my sleep,

Ten thousand living things are sleeping in my arms,

And sleeping wake, and flowing are at rest.
