Spring Scene - Poem by Adam Friedman

The sweet song
of a lone
red-breasted robin
is carried by the wind
into eternity.

The sun shines
a mellow crimson
upon the white bloom of the cherry blossom
as day breaks.

In solitude, I tread softly
and come to sit
on the park bench.

I wonder to myself,
what can it be
that compels nature
to express its unrivalled
beauty
so perfectly, so succinctly, so sensually.

Because, after all, I know,
this spring scene
cannot be
for me
alone.

And so,
I close my eyes
and imagine
you
there beside me.

Together
we sit,
accompanied by the sun’s
pink farewell.

As our eyes meet,
I can see a tiny,
but brilliant
sparkle
in yours.

As I take your hand in mine,
I can feel my heart
flutter,
the warmth
radiant.

A smile comes
to my face.

Yet, my heart has but one question:
will you join me
on another spring day,
when the sun is again ready
for its descent?

Or will I,
like the sun at twilight,
be
each time
disappointed…
