Rookie (November 11th 1976 / Oxford, England)


That kiss of greeting doubled as goodbye.
But when you sat beside me in the hall,
The cold worlds coalesced in one warm sigh,
Affirming for an instant this was all
That I desired. But the gentle breeze
Which held aloft the leaf one static moment,
Blew again and took it from the trees
Of Spring – its modest covenant was spent.
