See How They Love Me
by Howard Moss
See how they love me – green leaf, gold grass,
swearing my blue wrists tick and are timeless.
See how it moves me – old sea, blue sea,
curving a half-moon round to surround me.
See how it loves me – high sky, blue sky,
letting the light be kindled to warm me.
But you rebuke me, oh Love –
Love that I only pursue.
See how they love me.
