are paths and persons known to each other
the couple began to date one another.
hair flowing over his shoulder used to rejoice;
how sweet did sound the sweetheart’s voice!
chats though without themes were bright
thus continued endlessly night after night.
gates usually were not shut at that section:
dogs followed us, barking to no objection.
her sight from the dazzle with a small hand,
was a schoolgirl with homework gone bland;
in her innermost virginal soul of a gal,
seemed to dream a moment of some future pal.
tonight to this old path familiar since long ago
are coming back to revive our youth glow.
and wife at dogs barking and running after
at one another, convulsed with laughter.
our love in those green days let to disappear,
could we have our easy mind in this night sphere:
walk on the old path of familiarity permanent
And embrace in our four arms the wide firmament...
