Artist and His Love….

i’ll be your Marc Chagall
we’ll pray first under the stain glass
then we’ll ride equestrian –
– you can wear that red dress
we’ll travel under the stain glass stars
safe in my arms
carry you anywhere you wish to go

i’ll be your Marc Chagall
we’ll be lovers and the lovers under the big sun – with flowers
i’ll provide you with the colour and safety of love
we’ll be a couple flying over your village
sleeping with the raven at le champ de mars
we’ll be blue and green lovers
grey as lovers in the moon light

i’ll be your palette
safe in the warm love of colours
i’ll be your
Marc Chagall
