Was a fine day at school
But the sky was too blue
Your hair shone too much
And our blood seemed to rush

And so we sneaked out
Away from the crowd
Into the grass and the
Fields and the bees

Our parents would scream
And tell us: “Behave!”
But we didn’t care
Right now we were brave

And tall as two mountains
And lords of the land
We run through the summer
To rest in the sand!

The world was asleep
In study or work
So we were the only ones
Left on to learn

And learn we did
We learned all we could
The touch and the smell
And the sounds that you would

Make as I strolled through your body

So small, curved, delicate

A sweet violin

I learned how to play
Learned how to hold
How to caress
And let music unfold



 
And you’d play me too
A true virtuosa
And play we did, until:

The universe danced to our beat

Ghost couples danced on the street

To celebrate our youthful love

We watched the planes going bye
Pooping white tails in the sky
As the wind of the sea run through
Our naked bodies

And we talked about how silly it was
Living and dying and such
But in the end I remarked that today
It seemed quite
Fine

But the sun went to the sea
Putting a veil on all things that could be
And we walked home
Hand in hand

Helped each other get rid of the sand

Oh, it fell so softly
From your forehead to your freckled nose
Like snowflakes falling through your green eyes.

We parted
In your porch, like we always do,
And you softly remarked that today
Was quite
Fine
