‘Walk along the lake with me’

‘Walk along the lake with me’- 29 Oct. 2015

 

Walk along the lake with me

You are a ghost of love

Come along, come silently

No words— we need no thoughts.

Walk the water down with me

Our hands in pockets, gloves

Against the autumn and the breeze—

Quiet is what we know.

We could walk the lake eternally

Just you, and me, and snow,

Our traces covered as we leave

Our faces red and cold.

Walk along the lake with me

You, who I’ve never known.

Maybe I’ll meet you at the other end,

So I’ll walk this bank alone.
