I see couples, walking hand-in-hand
Footsteps rhyme, in tuned with love
Upon our showered, morning dewed
Lime-shaded blended grass.
Shimmering, glowing, fresh crisp sounds,
Underfoot upon this ground
And as with each breath, I undertake
Does this my park, in full autumn bloom,
As Autumn blows his gales, and
Torments with thunderous rains
I step outside in solace,
Making each step, a step of haste
Encouraged by full lovers’ sake.
Enhanced in love of life, do I stand
Upright, protect indeed, do I partake.
This is my birth-right
For Lovers’ sake.
