If I Could Call a Cloud

If I could call a cloud
By naming perfection,
I would bend upon my knee
And call your name:

(Name) (wait repeat name)

To see the bright light of your eyes
And the beauty of your smile,
It makes me laugh.
Oh, warm yellow morning sun,
But it’s only you,
You are so beautiful:

(Name) (Draw out the name)

Gorgeous.
Beyond comparison.
Images can not define
Nor names describe this seduction:

(Name)

So I will not call clouds
Or bow to call your name,
And I will not name perfection.
I will not name perfection
Nor water down this seduction:

(Name)

You are the fragrance of the flower.
The spray, the wave, the whistling breeze,
The air itself.
Bite by bite,
I eat your warm nectar:

(Name)

(Wait. Draw out the name)
