Onto You, a Poem from "Jersey Blues, Selected Poems"

A Bedouin and his camel resting before going down to the Gates of Cairo,
by Nellie Hadden

Onto You

I would cling onto you
as in the deceiving doze 
under the docile arches
laden with stars
abandons himself
half of the way
a Bedouin in the desert.

Princeton, New Jersey, April, 2003

From the collection Jersey Blues, also available on iBookstore and NOOK Book.
