Dawn of A New Year

When she was the first to step across the threshold
I knew things were off to a good start.
Outside, dark and lowering clouds pressed in,
But inside, her beaming face made me warm all over.
I wondered if we should still go for a walk,
But she insisted, hinting that I was afraid of the stormy skies.
In no time, I shrugged on my leather jacket and we set off.
The cold winds whipped at our clothing all the way to the park,
A little raindrop spattering here and there.
It soon intensified to a downpour.
The freezing drops soaked right through her coat
And her dark braids had raindrops sliding down them,
So we ran to a pine tree, and I placed my coat on her shoulders.
My shirt was instantly drenched,
Chilling me where it touched my skin.
But I did not care.
Because I was huddling under a tree with my favourite girl
And all it took was a look at her beaming face to make my heart warm.

    This poem somehow remind me of amovie i ve seen years ago called Dirty dancing..I can pixture the image of the leading actor with his leather jacket holding this young woman s hand in his and going for the car.Tnks for the memory :).Now to the poem-I can picture this romantic scene you painted with words-you and her in the rain under a tree..but nothing except your warmth and huddles matter.A very romantic writer you are .
