As I Watch Lovers Walk By - Poem by Reyvrex Questor Reyes

As I watch passing lovers, walking by,
How varied the 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
To waltz to tune that only they could hear,
Their hearts did hum the rhapsody they owned,
While, as I sensed, they're walking in the air,
As though 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.'
