#SoCS July 2, 2022 – amble

How fortunate we are for there is love
We amble in the street, aged and young
Preparing like the cooing of the dove
How fortunate we are for there is love
On a parched road we walk in peace, not shove
How fortunate we are for there is love
We amble in the street, aged and young*

A Triolet 

There was a girl who thought she’s normal
She ambles and lives in a castle
She’s got no friends
Nothing to spend
On her carousel as she joggles**

A steady breeze guided them along
They don’t need a compass as they travel
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

Dandelion on the field like singsong
Fast smashing cars, they need to be careful
A steady breeze guided them along

Lantern on the way as they made headlong
Went to a bakery and stayed on the aisle
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

A man with his glass of whisky that was wrong
Women in colourful sari as they amble
A steady breeze guided them along

Dogs on the street dangling their tails along
Not smooth sailing they have to go through the hurdle
On the street and on the subway all yearlong

Going through life as long as they belong
A good sense of humour in their struggle
A steady breeze guided them along
On the street and on the subway all yearlong***
