Autumn - Poem by Stevie Smith

He told his life story to Mrs. Courtly
Who was a widow. 'Let us get married shortly',
He said. 'I am no longer passionate,
But we can have some conversation before it is too late.'

    I find this so incredibly sweet. A couple in the autumn of their life and just wanting companionship. Simple but beautiful. (Report) Reply
