We share load in my rucksack
and agree, no need for bells and whistles
We assist each other navigate difficulties
and agree, anything can be accomplished
We quench our thirst from a well of love
and agree, love is a beautiful thing
We dine outdoors with birds singing
and agree, it’s time to dance
We take pleasure in dancing positions
and the moon approves.
