Love comes unexpectedly,
As though a melody
Came flooding into everyday,
Turning thought to dance.

It isn't sensuality,
Or plain good company,
Or beauty, or a fragrant spray
That brings one to romance;

But these and some sweet mystery,
A sensuous sanctity,
That makes a family out of play
And fate of wayward chance.
