In the wilderness you gave your love.
In land not sown you followed me.
Now I search for you.
Your face is pale but beauty rests
as mist upon a field.
Your heart a pearl encased in gold.
Your hair a sunlit shield.
My hair a stream of flowing tears.
My heart a wounded side.
My face a swan that bends in sleep
to seek his distant bride.
Wider than the sea,
deeper than your eyes,
my promised love for you
is broader than the skies.
