This letter I hold

In my hand

To read it over and over

Absorbing every word

I kiss its pages

As I know your

Hand touched it

In the gentle manner

Of your natural way

The movement of the biro

Forming each word

From the creation

Of your mind

Releases in my body

A veil of love

That can encompass

The two of us

Even if you are

So far away

I fall to sleep

With the pages

In my hands

And press them close

To my heart

Feeling your love

As tender and gentle

As those autumn sunsets

Over Oxford's erect spires.
