dusk arising



she wrote a love poem
he wrote an odd ode
late into the evening
in their musing abode

She played piano
romantic sonatas
He practiced euphonium
chaotic cantatas

she danced ballerina
tchaikovsky\'s white swan
he thumped to the pistols
and pogo\'d along

forty years later
grandkids at their feet
he bought her a tandem
she gave him a toilet seat
harmonious indifference
to what does not matter
for joy fills their home
where toddlers pitta-patter

now he practices yoga
and she repairs firearms
both totally sold
on each others charms

an oddly matched couple
but an obvious fact
lifes a funny old game
when opposites attract
