When I hear a cuckoo coo,
With that I can hear you too.
When you see a bird in flight,
Do I too, fly into your sight?

When magpies chatter,
I hear your laughter.
When drops of rain patters on your window,
Do you gaze, to find my shadow?

When a gentle breeze, sways the trees,
I hear you hum, like the buzzing bees.
When the approaching squalls, dash on your walls
Atop the noise, do you hear my calls?

When the bells jingle and the brooks babble.
All I can hear is your random gabble.
When at midnight, a lover mute, plays on a flute,
To your eyes, does my semblance take a route?

    @ Sarah Rose,
    Thanks for the kind words. When one is 'In Love', one sees and hears one's lover in everything. Shadow of eyes, echo to ears, as though! (Report) Reply

To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
