Verse: Song for m'lady

the sidewalk
comes creeping
up slowly
behind you
to see where
you are going

the wind
holds its breath
reaching out
to tousle
your long hair

the sun
pokes through
the clouds
just for one
brief glimpse
of your smile

the crows
all cluck
and strut
like they want
to catch your eye

and I watch
you disappear into
the world outside
as the colour
of a remark you made
still tingles
in my ears.
