THE LOVERS

How pleasant it would be to walk with you
Somewhere, anywhere in the countryside
  Away from all the crowds.

How pleasant it would be to talk with you
Where trees and green grass grows: we would sit :
  Idly watching water. . .

Listen to birds and bees making honey
Anywhere, somewhere in the countryside
  Away from all the crowds.

How pleasant to softly seek each other: peacefully
Somewhere, anywhere, alone together
  Away from all the crowds.

Panmelys 1977

Written for Sylvia Read and William Fry
