Other Side of the World and Back (To Sally)
I hear a magic, songlike voice.
A voice that’s crystal clear,
Ringing sweetly within my soul,
The voice of you, my dear …
My sister-friend, please sing again
Inside this, is your page.
Take me to your dark, inner den
A new, fantasy age.
A rosy hue, you will imbue
With new worlds I know not
Until, my friend, to me you rend,
One not to be forgot.
And so it is, that so will I
Give a laugh to you, a sigh,
And share my world, a silly poem –
You can call it a new home.
We’ve never voiced a single word,
But, you, Sally, are always heard.
