Drowning in green

I see your image in the lake below
Bending like a thirsty iris plant
I drown in leaves of paper and of woe

Mirrors, water,faces all can show
But not explain the meaning to an ant
I see your image in the lake below

Let me show by gestures what I know
That love can make an imprint like a stamp
I drown in leaves of paper and of woe

A generous smile. a hand held out,a blow
The Duchess made her tarts just for a tramp
I see her visage in the lake below

Think again and this time think it slow
Do not burn a candle, use a lamp
I drown in leaves of grass and old grey snow

If I offend you, do not take the hump
Let not your pride inflate as by a pump
I see your image in the lake below
Let’s sleep in leaves of elm and mistletoe
