Time Is The Picture Book You Said

Time is the picture book you said
with the raveled edge
but the raveled edge is gold

soft gold, after all you've told,
been told and there are the pictures
as you dreamed

the lilac seam
the stitches sewn
the apple hold in the faery ship

the rose bright way
where winters stray now
waiting any day

for the last page burnished
the new House furnished.
