return

a heavy silence
had stilled the beating
of this expectent heart

and ponderous steps
once descended resignedly
along a hardened path

thoughts of love
under malicious duress
had pointless failed

while a winter sun
pretended indifference
over sullen earth

but then

a timid gentle voice
sang sweetly softened
a most honest song

and eager hands
caressed this aging flesh
with passionate intent

and all at once
ascend determined words
of a buoyant soul

hopeful once more
evoking a winsome muse
benevolent and oh most eager
