The Dawning Of Love
Children high on a hill in the night,
carefully tracing their footsteps at first,
the countryside bandaged in moonlight.
Feeling the thrill and the fear of being
out beyond curfew as fairy lights flash in the valley,
assurance their lifeline to safety is still within reach.
Giddy with awe, gazing up at the heavens
they are dumbstruck, imagining
what it would be like to capture a star!
Music from the campfire dances lightly on the breeze,
shifting through the darkness like the whisper of a dream.
He helps her climb a wall into their next adventure
as they skip down to the river rippling merrily below.
There's a feeling between them they cannot explain,
a breathless attraction; joy fills their hearts
and they know that they won't be the same.
The first inklings of love are suggested at last,
they hold hands, enjoying the moment, the spell has been cast!
