On tentative waves of tenderness
We would go forward in attendance
Where softness in the dawn counts
Some flirtation of sunshine after dark.
Today the journey is short
Beyond tediousness of mordent expressions
Resting in the airs like some sovereign sounds
Crossing thresholds of the neglected lessers.
Stone statues allured by the shades
Clad in grey wearing trousers of the mist
Doleful expressions in quizzing of heart
Frequency of failures in a wistful start.
