she waited until she came downstairs
wrapped in towels and essence of autumn
and she briefly thought to herself
how far I have come ..
she stood by the kitchen door
roses in a bunch, hyacinth on the floor
what are you doing?
this right, I hope.
and when she dropped to one knee
the raven dropped the towel in shock
I knew nothing until you came in
you found me when I hid myself within
I cannot fathom existence without you in my life
Vivien, would you be my wife?
