LOVE IN THE FOG

                        LOVE IN THE FOG


          Gardens will bloom and leaves will fall
          Hearts will be quickened –fog or snow
          Love beckons once its sudden call....

          Through midnight fog a stark black crow
          Sought shoulders of a man well-horsed. 
          Hearts will be quickened –fog or snow

          A woman parted highland gorse
          She walked with purpose—mind was set--
          Sought shoulders of a man well-horsed.

          As Fate would have it their eyes met
          He smiled --reached down-- her hand kissed light
          She walked with purpose—mind was set--

          Plucked from the road—sped out of sight.
          Her bonnet tossed mid roadside grass---
          He smiled --reached down-- her hand kissed light

          Townsfolk wonder each time they pass
          Gardens will bloom and leaves will fall
          Her bonnet tossed mid roadside grass---
          Love beckons once its sudden call....

                  Who of us dares
                   Fly into the night 
                On love’s bold far-eyed steed?
