A white little car

Took a pair of lovers

Quick and silent

To cozy green covers


It let them stretch and twist

Heard them coo and whisper

In its soft bucket seats

They uttered vows of care


It watched them read poems

And kiss so very often

Seeped in dew of love

Move in eager commotion


The car stood there

In the wet chilly cold

While the couple spent hours

In each other's fold


The car gave the lovers

Safety space and ease

While it made the sacrifice

And drained its batteries!
