7 Autumn Moments (5)

In a teeming time,
By a longing lake,
We believed in love
For the loving's sake;

So we sang our songs,
And we held our hands,
And the sun shone bright
Off our wedding bands.

In a tangled time,
By a lonely lake,
We asked questions why
For the question's sake;

But the songs fell flat,
And the sun shone less
On two metal bands
