You came north.
I took you more northerly still,
my arms around you green
as the hearts of young trees.
The lake gave us all it had--
shells, glass, smooth stones,
and pretty foam laid at our feet.
My dark-haired, dark-eyed stormy baby,
see me orange and black, a monarch girl
in love with you, transformed.
To STWIASD from your Michigan girl.
