As I Watch Lovers Walk By

As I watch passing lovers, walking by
I have seen how affection they would show
The language, bodies speak, decipher I
For acts that, soon or not, they might pursue
In such opportune times
They'll have, which I could only wish to know

One pair passed by, while hand in hand they're bound
Waltzing to tune that only they could hear
Their hearts humming the rhapsody they owned
While, as I sensed, they're walking in the air
Hoping they really were,
To claim some parts of Heaven as their share

Another pair just each other peruse
Then whiled away the nervous hour in food
But soon employed their mouths to other use
While speechless, they have said enough, and good
I heard this once when told
Silence is gold, and now, I understood

Behind a hedge a pair is closeted
It's Paradise beneath that apple tree
'My, oh my, what embrace, ' I so jested
'Reminds me well of grandmother's crochet'
For once, you must agree
Birds got to soar up high when they are free

And now to look for love to own, I'll try
A fine young lass to whom I might relate
Who also watches lovers walking by
I pray that somewhere down the lane we'll meet
As once someone so great
Have prayed, 'Lord give me chastity, not yet.'

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
