Book’s Valentine

There was a book
In the beginning now lost
That held the solutions
To all future questions
A book of living pictures
That kept intact with notes
And cogent explanations
The whole history of power
And the revelations of wisdom
That book begat another book
And so on and all subsequently
Destroyed or buried maybe
Finally with Osiris no one knows
But here it is dear God I found it
In a book-stall by the river
Here among the antiquities
The fresh pages of your eyes
