(that was awfully clever of you, Helen.  Touche'!) :clap:

 

then comes mare with foal

gently she nudges him to

wade along the shore

( Thank you, you're most kind :blush: But it's wasn't clever of me... it's mostly my Hatopus - that octopus on my head in my avatar - doing the thinking, I just type... we tried the other way around too but it wasn't really working :D )

 

wade along the shore

with a pebble in your hand 

time will smooth our scars

time will soothe our scars

moonlight's an emollient

bathe your wounds in it

while walking uphill

old steps seem like yesterdays

fallen from the toil

fallen from the toil

pride of inner demons sleep

an almost sweet sight

on the heaven's stage

specks of man-made dust may seem

like the stars themselves

pinned behind the moon 

silk so fine it's only seen 

reflecting the light

reflecting the light

harbor glistens in long strings

night drippings from shore

fade as distance hides the ship 

heading towards dawn

you'd think such mistake can be 

made but only once
