(For Markley)

With America
'neath my left foot
and Europe 'neath my right,
my head and sight
are the sun itself
and you are none of me.

Though if I turned
and set some paws
on South and Africa,
it's face becomes the Lion's
and you are none of me.

And so I thought,
We cannot be
so greedy with it all
and gave a portion back
from where it came.

And sending off in faith
I said, "Someday, somehow,
I will explain."

Before we met, I had it all
and you were none of me
And so I gave my world to you
that this our world could be.

This is so well-written- the first part of the poem with its unique images makes the end so romantic, truly beautiful- you handled it with a balance so that there's no cheesiness abou it.
