2. Flesh, Cities, Trees and Cloth

Rest your head upon my breast, my love. Let white skin pillow you as you drowse. Pale arms hold you from the chill without: snow falls, white and crisp, but here, with me, you are safe, and ever shall be.

Let not my gentle kisses rouse you, my love, but dream of white cities; white trees; graceful towers of pearl and silver.

The white linen about your shoulders will give way to richer cloths; my arms to beaten steel. But for now, my love, my star, my hope, rest your head upon my breast, and dream of what will come.
