I built this path, I laid these stones
With love I set down, a path thru gorse
With each one I found I sought
I left a bit of self, lonely fraught

You saw the 'crete, a simple path lain
You hopped across my lovelorn road of pain

Each one was a testament to my joy
To my heart with which  you did toy

July was for the look, your disdain
The girl I wanted, to overcome, to reign

August for the great, you left, you left
I felt as lone schooler, single, bereft

September for the Autumn you brought back
You suddenly appeared, cross creek I you raf't

October for the halloween we fretted, suspicious
Not knowing if this was poision, or love, delicious

November for the flurries, your snowy birthday dance
We clashed and sparred, felt wintry love lance

December we cautious, pirouetting, eyeing
Into the New Year we wary spying

January came, we started class, knew new stress
Pricked apart, yet came, together crass

February came, new Cupid new shuffle
We tested limits, stepped away feath'rs ruffl'd

March came out of their wedding bliss
We fought over future, could we  hit 'r miss

April brought a new creature, the finals
We pushed through together, equals and rivals

May brought Florida, Destin, so perfect
Fourteen brought us joy and warmth, circumspect

June again, now almost a year
I felt the nervousness, relationship a year

...Continued in "23 Stones Part 2"
