Jean Valentine - Late

Late have I called &
late my 
beloved 
was blessing me   
   
I was covering 
my breasts with my arms   
   
              "Those doves" 
              you said   
   
In the sun          I took my arms away

The Isle of Lokrum:
It was long, long ago in the isle of Lokrum
Nude birds and fish and a dancing phantom
On tiptoes he jerked and was nude as well
To birds and fish he would whisper and tell
“Enjoy the sun of my isle, kissing and licking
And you’ll fly back with the most charming skin,
Give your breasts and gardens and erect trees
To the sunrays and to my blowing breeze”
And they all swim and fly and lay to the sun
It was long, long ago in the isle of Lokrum.
