The Song

 photo little-boy-girl_pr76450_zps0f2dc8ac-1_zpsdfb00dfc.jpg

The girl child
grew like a vine
attaching herself
to any strong oak
in the forest
while the boy child
ran wild and tall
foraging and digging
for nuggets of gold.

One day
they found each other
by a silver stream that
bubbled and sang
of a strange new song
they had yet to hear.

their eyes opened wide
and caught sight
of their fingertips touching
and softness grew
up their arms
and into their hearts.

This was the beginning
of yearning . . .

and this became the Song.
