ESCAPE

Oh, Love, let's play hooky today
and flee to a place far, far removed
from this city's din,
this demanding roller-coaster ride.

Let's find a secret spot
where nature's songs
blend in harmony
with the beating
of our hearts,
a cantata of love
to rescue us,
briefly,
from the drudgery of life.

We'll go strolling tranquilly
among the blooming flowers and fields,
with sunshine glinting on our hair,
bare feet caressing warm earth,
breathing free the quietude,
soul touching soul,
hands entwined,
drinking rapture with our eyes,
together.

Will you come with me?
