Hidden under the heron's wing

Hidden under the heron's wing
Or the song before daybreak that the lotos-birds sing
Evening whisper of stars together
Oh my beloved what do you bring —

With evening feet walking across the grass
And fragile arms dividing the evening mist.

I lie on the floor a bottle's broken glass
To be swept away by the housemaid's crimson fist.
