Knowing in Love
We took a walk in sweetened fields
That day so long ago,
Our drifting steps fell smooth as one
To stroke the earth below.
The blooms of asters whispered soft
A song that lovers share,
We hummed the words in single voice
To sooth our yearnings there.
The summer sun was kind to us
Although one seldom sees
How seasons cease to know their place
In blissful reverie.
Our shadows were not strangers then
Nor lost in solitude --
Revealing dreams in shape and curve
The nightfields once subdued.
We needed not the wooded shade
Nor mending walls of stone
For boundless sky and light-wind calls
Will never rest alone.
Though life may distance sweetened fields
When seeking to fulfill…
We look within our hearts and know
Their magic lingers, still.
