Shields

Protecting, directing,
shapes of a dancer,
words of prose,
the beat of a drum,
guitar twang,
the way she sang,
strokes of the brush,
colours and paint,
flowing from mind to hand,
times measured by grains of sand,
pleasant fresh land,
a touch of love,
rain from above,
all that you knew,
precious to you,
hounds bark,
in the empty dark,
threaten with fear, 
all that is dear,
you come in peace,
but live on the deceased,
be our shields,
and wrap us in gold,
let our loving stories forever be told,
