Bet a Pound - It Bound them Together

It started with a pound.
She thought 
She heard a sound
It was cling
Followed by a clang
It had fallen on the ground.

Then she saw him
Picking her lucky charm
Wait! –she shouted
But to deaf ears
Put something in his pocket
Swaying like a breeze
He walked away.

Thief, she roared
By then he had crossed the road
She cries to herself
He turns 
As if returning to help
She lifted her eyes
Asked for what shines
He said none he owned
Angrily she bent
To pick up the stone.

She heard that sound again
That clings with a clang
Sheepishly she glanced at him
He smiled, his eyes danced
Made cool breeze sing
Evening skies dim.

She stutters
Her heart flutters
Mischief by that pound
That had fallen on the ground
Just twin heart beats
Without outer sounds.

Friendship blossomed
Spring sealed the chasms
Winter progressed 
Bringing warm love around
Thus, began the sail
Starting with a pound
- Her fairy tale.
