Fathers Love Lament

****

Candles flickering in the dark night scene,
Two lovers meeting silently unseen,
Sweet whispers carry nothing of import,
As lips kiss ears and breathing becomes short.
Shouts filter through the woods coming their way,
The father hunting hard to have his say,
Yet knowing how he feels can’t stop their love,
Both feel divinely met from God above.
Nothing here on Earth can part them now,
As face to face they slowly sink to ground,
To consummate their love as soon as die,
In passions frenzy Jules reaches for her guy,
And when the dogs arrive their love is spent,
As Father, looking down, starts his lament.
