Favorite Quote:
"..though warm as summer it was fresh as spring." (Thomas Hardy) ("Far from the Madding crowd")

The bricked, brown sickles layer on top of one another as glue smooths across the perfect glass
And little hands, slender and impressive as crystals, entwine as twigs round a tree trunk;
Lips, plump and thick, come together under a grinning sun, pink and glistening as their
Tongues ice skate around their gold-shaped teeth, in a red skateboard of colour;
And the stitch-sewn shoes of the lovers shift like footfalls; and exit together off the brown bridge.

The author's comments:

A Romantic, Landscape poem painting a portrait of two ambiguious lovers, as they meet in the seasons of winter and autumn; and in one last scene, depart.
