Philology VII


A welcoming summer smile
usually at a cottage near water
where the view has a sunrise or sunset

An embrace of affection, comfort, passion
usually in private, not always, but
offered without reservation

Comfort in a pair of socks or gloves
on a winter night or against a winter wind
always welcome, often necessary

A greeting in a crowd of strangers
from a loved one, a friend, a confidante
necessary and welcoming

Food, tea, coffee or hot chocolate
stimulating rewarding positive
like everything we need and want
