gifts from faraway lands

gifts from faraway lands

like a gentle breeze
that bears gifts from a faraway land

she, a poet-writer
strings my little words
into postcards perfumed with hedge-flowers

she, a maker
enfolds my quiet world
into her lovely quilt

the memory of their kindness
will always tinkle in my heart


the magic in this world
seems to work
in whispers and small kindness

charles de lint

let my thoughts come to you
when I am gone
like the afterglow of sunset
at the margin of starry silence
