There's a light in the house in the wood in the valley.
Who carries his dreams like the coat slung on his shoulder,

no word he would say could you understand.
Bringing you love cap in hand.
Catching breath as he looks through the dining-room window:
Strange slippers by the fire.

I turn and walk away.
