The Tale of Ænia and Ionatan – Jonathan Noble

 

In the courtyard of summer Ænia he found, so light, too bright,
 
And the mortal Ionatan could not love her there; she so fair.
 
 
In the courtyard of summer Ænia he found, so light, too bright,
 
And the mortal Ionatan could not love her there; she so fair.
 
 
In the forest of fall Ænia did call in pleasure, burning treasure,
 
But weak Ionatan could not bear the weight of her heavenly state.
 
 
In the temple of winter did she fall to her face in sullied disgrace,
 
Alas, if he could now but see his lover under earth’s dark cover!
 
 
In the garden of spring Ænia he found, joy rebirthed, life unearthed,
 
But man could not live in her passion so wild, so divinely child.
 
 
And both wept in love for love, too close to touch and miss so much,
 
Goddess Ænia in lonely pain; her man in hunger, driven insane.
 
 
And the sun rose on mourning day, no more tortured, body lowered ~
 
An end of lament, in her arms secure; safe in Ænia and forever content.
