London Evening Rain - Poem by Vincent Kuo

We both seem to be lost
Amidst the pitter-patter of cobble-stones
As the street lamp casts a hazy glow
Along the row of red-caged telephones

We both seem to be alone
Just some bicycles chained to the side
Under some fenced, bare-naked trees
Where some rascals play slip-and-slide

We both seem to be drifting
Like the gentle rain in the evening air
The empty street feels lonely and dim
Though it's cosy under the brolly we share

We both are fervidly sharing
The infatuation within our snug embrace
The cold, drizzly night is warmed by our love
In this heart of mine, there's no lonely place

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is a depiction of a cold, rainy evening, on a dark, lonely street where we walk. Despite the gloomy atmosphere, my spirit remains warmly heartened. The realization of the love in one's heart surpasses all the cold and solitude in the world.

*brolly = umbrella

    Lovely little poem, don't know why but I visualized this as a scene from an old black & white movie. (Report) Reply
