Triolets

Between birdsong and dawn
Night slipped away
barefoot across the lawn.
Between birdsong and dawn
her perfume lingered on
to fade before the day.
Between birdsong and dawn
Night slipped away.

-o-

a line or two to say - I miss
your tender lips your gentle touch
(a sudden urge to tell you this)
a line or two to say I miss
your voice your eyes your laugh your kiss -
our kiss - you won't begrudge me such
a line (or two) to say I miss
your tender lips your gentle touch...
