That I Might – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

At dVersed Laura is hosting poetics with an invitation to think about endings, and, using an ending of a known poem to begin our own.

dVerse Poets – Poetics – Beginning at the end

I have chosen “Call me to lie down in fragrance.” from the poem ‘Season of Lilac’ by Dave Margoshes

That I Might

Call me to lie down in fragrance
beyond where the wattle's spring
glow speaks of love immortal,
that I might rise impassioned
with a scent of all my tomorrows
vested in your every movement,
dance your fingers slowly upon me
that my life would spill over.

  6. with a scent of all my tomorrows
    vested in your every movement,

    ooh, that’s lovely. This whole poem has such a warm, dream-like feel. I can feel the warmth even here in wintry England.
