Lovers Lane


Antique weathered lamp posts

Radiate their warm glowing hue

Each one casting inky shadows

Upon those unobservant few


There’s a slight scent of rain

Hovering on the velvety breeze

While loves pure essence lingers

Amongst the silvery moonlit trees


Lovers stroll along the shadowy pathway

Each captivated by amorous thoughts

Lovingly sharing words of affection

And whispering forget me nots


Emotions surge as fingers are laced

Each one enthralled by the other

Never before have they felt this way

Except towards one another


Written by, Michelle Cook


I have so many memories of long walks with my grandmother, and on every walk, she would sing old songs like this one.  I think the song, Singing in the Rain was her favorite.  I really miss those walks with her.  This particular song came to me while writing this.  Gotta love Doris Day…
