The reeds swayed in the breeze,
Your hair did similarly.
The aroma of imported dark chocolate
captured my attention,
Your eyes did similarly.
The curved form of the Italian sculptures
followed my gaze,
Your body did similarly.
The third act of the Shakespearean plays
brought tears to me,
You did similarly.
