A Glimpse

A Glimpse, through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room, around the stove,
late of a winter night–And I unremark’d seated in a corner;
Of a youth who loves me, and whom I love,
silently approaching, and
seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand;
A long while, amid the noises of coming and going–of drinking and
oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little,
perhaps not a word.

Suggested read : Walt Whitman

Suggested rythm: Is there anybody out there ,Pink Floyd

    The safest communication is through look-wire.

    Nicely written.

    Used to enjoy the bar milieu a lot. 🙂

    Pink Floyd is one of my favourites.

    Great writing!

    Very Walt Whitman. And Pink Floyd rules. You just can’t go wrong!
