Signs

The Mona Lisa's there, the guide-book says -
her half-a-smile, its gentle corner lines,
her gaze - all hidden by the cameras raised:
salutes of legions following the signs.
But take his hand, my sweet, and find your way,
quick, through the arch, and left, and left again
and stop. The empty hall. The stillness may
allow you both to enter his domain,
the desert. Dust and rocks and river's side
and signs; repentance; ways made straight and clear:
hard labour - taste of ashes, murdered pride -
the things we do for love, your love, my dear.
We give ourselves that you may love anew.
We open doors for others to pass through.
