An Old Man and an Old Woman

An old man and an old woman
sitting by a road

What for do they wait?
Their son from the city far?
An old friend from the town so near?

I do not think they are waiting
like the rest of the world
always waiting
for something to happen
as if what happens now isn't enough.

The old man and the woman
just sit by the road

out of this world, yet in this world
without its fever, yet with its warmth.

So tender the man
and the woman very content.
