PINE BRANCH, by            
First Line: Drooped in darker green
Last Line: That day -- you know -- the walk for three.
Subject(s): Love; Pine Trees

Drooped in darker green,
By needles, brushlike, grouped,
Its story sewn in dreams,
The stolen pine twig told
To every needle on the branch.
You took a stitch in love's romance;
At gloam, pierced autumn's farewell sound,
Staccato rain fell straight to freeze.
Over hills, along the stream,
Across the sward and under trees,
Love was in our midst;
Everywhere but in my heart.
Only the lover knew --
For I was unaware of thee;
Nurtured branch in burnished urn,
Listening for the murmuring wind
Heard, instead, I love but you,
Drooped still more and softly sighed . . .
That day -- you know -- the walk for three.
