  October's Child



She walked across the stage, her head held high
He observed from the shadows as she walked by,
her green eyes flickering as candles in the rain

He'd found her drifting inside her own clime
A dim silhouette within a gallery of time,
scribbling ink black words across lavender pages

She was a rainy day child, twined in disarray
having paper plate dinners, sipping café au lait
He spoke of himself as Darth Vader's seventh son

A sea of gowns and top hats took their places
wearing pious smiles on roadmap faces
How she wished he could see her now

Bemused, he observed the smile on her face
as he watched her travel from an icy place
to remove her covering of midnight

Enfant d'octobre
