Slowly, slowly, slowly The dream unfolded its leaves And I saw a young girl coming towards me, Moving like a sensuous river Through the flat meadows of April. I sang 'You are come, you are come, Virgin most beautiful Untouched by the hands of another man. It was for you I've been waiting Through centuries of tortured manhood." She stood beside me. I touched the untouchable I kissed the lips of the unnamed And found the missing letter.
Slowly, slowly, slowly
As a leaf bursts from a bud of an April tree
She came to my house
