Abbraccio

Abbracio

Riding bicycles in the rain in Lucca.
Had to buy some gloves,
It’s cold in November.

Round the top of the wall
That hugs the city.
The walls they refused to part with.
Loyal to them to the end.

They laughed and remembered
the joy of riding bikes as children.
Out on your own,
Into town with the dog
and adventure.

Or hitching a ride on a friend’s bike.
Balancing and not falling.
They had fallen in love
And then out of love.

And here they were on the walls
of Lucca in winter’s embrace.
Friends to the end.
