A BOY AND GIRL IN 1962

\"\"

She had managed to get out

and met you by the pond

 

where you had been waiting

and the morning air was fresh

 

and the birds were in song

and the flowers around the pond

 

were colourful

and she sat beside you

 

and said

Had to sneak out

 

the back way

before my mother

 

gave me chores

and anyway

 

it’s too nice a day

to be stuck indoors

 

and she looked at you

and smiled her bright smile

 

and you said

Glad you came

 

don’t like being here

unless you’re with me

 

it reminds me of you

this place

 

us being here together

and she said

 

Remember that time

we were here

 

and the rain came down

and we got drenched

 

and had to run to the barn

and shelter

 

and we were warm

and looked at each other

 

and then she stopped

and looked at the pond

 

and at the ducks there

and the bright morning sky

 

and you said

Yes that was a time to remember

 

and do you remember

that mouse that ran over your leg

 

and you screamed

and it echoed

 

around the barn

as if you were being murdered

 

and she laughed

and put her head

 

on your shoulder

and said

 

I can’t help it

if mice frighten me

 

and you sensed her head

against you

 

and wanted that moment

like all moments with her

 

never to end

but some how

 

to always to be there

memories and moments

 

and feelings

and the ducks

 

and the smell

of the morning air

 

always to be in my mind

and always to be there.

And so, and so it is - in mind, always there. Softly, sorrowfully.
