Ebony and Ivory


Flanked by pine trees

streaked in ivy

smoky chimney

snowy roof

A hidden cabin

in the woods

A broken door

creaking with age

floorboards squeaking

underfoot

An empty room

filled with heat

Flames lick the air

dance on the logs

small and crooked

in the hearth

A stone fireplace

next to me.

Bathed in firelight

asleep together

an ebony girl

and ivory boy.

A young couple

much in love

Small and crooked

creaking with age

floorboards squeaking

underfoot.

A vagabond

filled with hope.
