As We Walk Up The Hill Poem by William Kofoed

As We Walk Up The Hill



As we walk up the hill
the last of the day's once firm hold
weakens on the world
till as we reach the top
it falls away
and night slowly begins to fold about us
and as the towns and cities below us fade
overhead in the sky
which was a dome of blue
blue that left with the sun
slowly coming at first one by one
when by two and two and then by threes
till coming faster that the mind can count
the stars awaken to await the moon
who at its coming will rule the night sky
and now we turn about
to look down upon the towns and cities below
that now seem to mirror the sky
or perhaps to be another sky
we turn to look into the others eyes
eyes that are filled with the pure light of love
and with the hill as our alter
and with the stars and moon to watch
we tell the other of our love
swearing to it forever
swearing to seal our life's together
and to make our dreams and hopes one
we kneel hand in hand
and pray to God that we may come to his house
and there for him to seal our love forever
so that our love will never die.
