Piano Bar Blues

Dizzy summer night

quenched with lager

her eyes dreamy

with piano bar blues

moving aside their empty glasses

his arm brushed hers

low lighting and soft cushions

made her head swim

they slipped away

into the moonlight

music fading

as they sauntered back

under the larch trees

along the water

his hands in his pockets

all the way home.
