By Mike Turner

A ripple in still water
Steals ‘cross the mirror’d pool
Stirred by a breath-like zephyr
The languid air to cool

Golden sunlight dappling
Through foliage high in trees
We lay in rustling grasses
To gently take our ease

Our lips so gently brushing
In tender moment’s kiss
Warm in our joint embraces
Cradled within our bliss

‘Til twilight falls upon us
Bright stars shimmer above
Reflecting our shared heart-light
Two souls entwined in love

Could I but pass my days
At study in this school
Of rippling, gentle water
In placid, mirror’d pool
