Twilight

 

            


             Twilight



              A moments respite, that summer eve , I sat

               Indeed mum, without a thought,

               When I heard her voice, not strange

               But alluring with a tinge

               Of sensuality in its range,

               To thrill my heart and lend my ears.


              Slowly accosted she,

              "Dear, I pray pardon me

              For this intrusion into this hour

              Of peace and tranquility, just

              Worried am I , to tell you why

              Words don't come, they are shy





Oh dear ! How could I, a girl

Of my age, her anguish unveil

When it touches her very heart

The soft most part of it really

With heat unbearable and alarming

Of the hurdles to be encountered on its path".


With her lying on my lap, I thought

What providence has her led

To this plight, to take rest

On my lap, sad and tired

Is it a test ? Impediments put

on two loving hearts 


"Oh dear !" looking up she said,

"God bless us ! tomorrow I bid

At this hour shall we meet".

Leaving me with a sigh so quiet

She fled to join her sinless friends

The flowers and butterflies in her garden.


At twilight the next day, weeping

And pressing her plumpy breast

Against my chest, clinging tight

to my neck, she somehow said,

"Lord, I am yours I know, but

Why am I to leave you now ?"


"I believe in Love, I tell you"

With a deep sigh she said

"Be firm, bother not about me

We will meet again be sure".

She for certain spoke the Will of Love

For at last, I proceed to meet her again.
