Saffron Diffusing

May 10, 2010

I noticed the glow of these two as they seemed to blend right into their golden background. Then I happened upon this poem:

A Life’s Love Song

As the sun-beams with amber tinge shine
Through the sheaves that responsive are glowing,
Thy heart lends a glad hue to mine,
In Love’s golden bloom ever growing.

Thy radiance with Love’s ripening powers,
In the gleam of warm glances alluring,
Endows me with fruitage and flowers
Of a sweetness and fragrance enduring.

O Love, may thy vital rays glow
Like the sun-beams their saffron diffusing–
All thy tints on my being bestow,
My life-growths forever suffusing!

— Henry O’Meara (1848-1904)

(I’m going to be bummed if I find out they’re just friends…)
