Spin me a Cocoon


Copyright May 14, 1999  Yvonne Stewart


Spin me a cocoon for a year or two

or let me crash with waves

on some deserted shore.

Pour me jasmine tea with Napoleons

                   while breezes romp among

sweet lilac boughs,

then bed me on softest down with a kitten to cuddle,

in a radiant meadow where a sheer, silent rainfall

weeps my tears,

and let me sleep awhile.
