I Saw Them Walking

I saw them walking
Along the forlorn street
At night against my headlights
Hand in hand together
Whispering into each other

The east wind had just begun
To whisper to the leaves
In hush hush
And what could be these love-birds
Crooning into the ears of each other?

What could the chill of the night
Hold for them - a distant hut
Where dreams are made
With the feathers of paradise?

Take a bit of me at least
Into your thoughts
When you share your warmth tonight
Love birds in your nest
So that my night is made
Sweet with the east wind
And soulful solitude
Aloneness sans any bounds
