Dream Date with Scarlet and Bob


When the winter sends the snows between our doors

The music pours incense through corridors

The white horizon starts to roar

The Spanish chord of a distant train

The engine of an afternoon

approaching, bearing thoughts of yours,

Under quilts and pelts and freezing rain.

And if your windows reflect on mine

Our ricochet glimpses glint and shine

To numb the pains of temporary time.

Every crystal bud presages

A sanctuary hint of August's massage

As thawed and fresh unfrozen we meet

In adoration unadorned.
