Baruch liked
Yehudit's eyes
the smile that lingered
waiting for her


seemed an eternity  
being with her
always seemed
too short a time


the walk
by the wood shed
the memory
of their first


smoke there
she almost choking
that first time
the path


through the woods
the trees tall
sky above
hardly seen


she by a tree
that time waiting
said she wanted to
but they didn't


not just yet
he said
the walk to the pond
warm weather


unlike that first time
when the frost
bit them
he waited


by the pond side
ducks swimming
the water's skin


she lay once
beside him here
talked of sex
or what


she knew of it
what girls
at school said
what one girl


said it was like
he watched the ducks
smelt the weather's air
that first kiss


kisses followed
she and him
the moon shining
above them


he liked the way
she lay
on that bed
the sunlight


through the window
on her breasts
he watched the sky


the tall trees
clouds passing
he liked her hand


in his
warm pulsing
fingers touching


waiting seemed
an eternity
he often said


playing out
the last kiss
his morning time head.
