I do recall

One late summer

Night when the

Moon was full

And cast eerily

On Carter’s pond

Making your ripples

Dance like slowed

Almost still fireflies

As you swam

Silently except for

The jump of

A fish disturbed

Dipping my toes

Into that twilight

Feeling the tingle

Of cool water

Sending shivers upward

And wanting to

But daring not

To undress myself

And swim with

You fearing not

You but I

For you I

Knew but me

I did not

Then know me

There with you
