Our First Evening

Holding Hands

If love could soothe all peoples’ souls,

As you, with gentle hands, have mine,

Then life would be a smoother wine

To ease all minds from anxious goals.


The time around us walked its pace,

As if it knew we wouldn’t rush;

The room took on a quiet hush,

As happy pleasures warmed your face.


Our words drew close, reached out for fun,

As each new thought jumped forth and back

Between direct, right-on-the-track,

And humour, freely left undone.


Then silent words took over there,

As we, with pensive feelings, lay

And knew we had no need to say

What signs it took to show we care.


I’ll wait, you know I’ll patient be,

Until those perfect moments come,

When I shall cause your heart to drum,

And have you love me equally.


(written in 1975)
