Love Is

By: Ekow Amissah

Love is the bird who shook off the wetting dew
Whilst it shivered and sang in the first sunlight
Waking a gentle lady and her beloved with a melody
That made her heart and his soul shiver, so they clung to each other

Love is the everyday joy of knowing certitude
The magic that makes being close, electric
Bringing a silly smile and goofy smirk
To punctuate every line and story told
