Love is an infinite power

Be wary – you will ride
Into the distance.
You will cross galaxies,
You will swim through
Bright coronas,
You will break yourself
On marble, on granite,
On a lock of hair.

Love is an infinite power –
The fine root that finds its way
Through rock, through concrete
Through tarmac; the sweet drop
Of water, that eases through
The invisible gap; the first note
Of the symphony; the last chord.

Love is an infinite power,
The rising, singing lark –
The fox slinking along the hedge –
The hand that grips yours.

Love is an infinite power,
And we are finite,
Bounded in time and space,
And yet we hold within us
An infinity of stars.
