Villanelle by Water

I would like to take you down by the stream

and watch the clear water glide gently by,

sharing and staring while the trees do beam.

 

This request needn’t be a fruitless dream

for as long as the sun shines bright up high,

I would like to take you down by the stream.

 

We would taste such pleasures until we scream,

while the fish flit as they patrol the Wye;

sharing and staring while the trees do beam.

 

To be with you when the soft light does gleam,

bathing our minds, hear the soothing reply;

I would like to take you down by the stream.

 

The mountains stand tall, lord of all they deem;

let us be natural, kiss so we fly

Sharing and staring while the trees do beam.

 

This is the scene that shimmers with a sheen,

laugh and love with a flow that does not die;

I would like to take you down by the stream

sharing and staring while the trees do beam.
