A SONG FOR THE ANIMA

to yourself you seem
a birthday girl ....

o aeterna veritas

waking each dawn
to a rain-washed sky
and clear cool sun ....

o vera caritas

but to me
(and to him)
you are
a galaxy irreplaceable
a shimmering luminosity
of light, of life and of love ....

o cara aeternitatis

where each small star
echoes
the radiance of eternity ....

(O eternal truth
and true loving
and beloved eternity)

o aeterna veritas
et vera caritas
et cara aeternitatis ....
