In plenary states of disarray
with little favouring fortitude
they journeyed on with lonely thoughts
as distant cow bells rang.
They quietly spoke in tones of ease
and with unshakable esteem
by firm and natural impulses
their discomposure soon subdued.
With celibate discretion gone
they strayed from narrow trodden paths
the renascence of love once lost
renewed unseen in ecstasy.
