Love Within the Untrodden Ways

~
You show yourself,
but do not speak.
This happens all the time.
~
Would you think
I’d steal away
what we both leave behind?
~
And in the wake
we hesitate,
and ponder at the sign.
~
Should we greet,
would we seek
something else of kind?
~
You go your way,
I go mine;
the secret we both keep.
~
And in my bed
it’s you, instead,
I think of when I sleep.
~
And when we meet,
you still won’t speak,
but keep your lovely head.
~
Oh! but how our eyes do meet,
covertly seeking, sneak a peek;
but in the end we leave, instead —
each to each, our separate beds.
