Two statues of stone On pedestals in the park One male One female White objects of a perfections beauty Yet they stood erect and alone When the rain fell This was their tears The stared at each other with longing The trees grew tall Season by season the flowers bloomed Two statues standing erect in the prison of life's hold A poet walked in the park Glancing at lovers, kisses at dusk He stared at the statues above his head He knew, with dread, the loneliness of stone maidens He waited for the park to become enclosed in the twilight With toil and sweat he did succeed on his lark Pushing the statues close rather than apart As one statue danced and the other one sang They kissed the sweetness of night and felt the tears of joy All because a poet Wished them a lovers embrace He knew them like they were his children For here he was as well A statue In love

what a sweet magical tale of the poet and those statues. It almost seems like he became a stature too from that last part I read. Lovely,.
