Teach me to sleep


Nimue and Merlin

Teach me to sleep
He whispered, now that you’ve gone
Hills answered green unfolding billows
The sheet of Lake Vyrnwy  white as sun
In hollows of caves, pink quartzes shone
In woods wide eyed flowers
Fixed on the moon
The stars all her buttons

Undone, one by one.
