Raison d'etre

Across the Rue de Contretemps
within a greening park
an ageless watching bon vivant,
au pair to beauty's lark,
sees two whose tousled golden curls
their mother's charm evokes,
as if refreshing newer worlds
the past and present yokes.

A curtain rises on act five
a scene too fast to play,
one actor, striving to contrive
its ambiance, would say
one final line as epilogue.
"In love with hearts aflame,
seek not the lusty demigogue
remember Agape's name!"
