    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    during the summer solstice
    let's lose track of time, get lost in reality
    during the longest day of the year

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and ponder the reason for reason
    let's discuss the prose and poetry
    of Emerson, Whitman, Hemingway and Frost

    let's meet at Walden' sPond
    and become more enamored with nature than Wordsworth
    let's live vicariously through the nature's bliss
    the truest beauty to behold

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and plan our pilgrimage to the motherland
    let's be revived by our spiritual rebirth
    cleansing ourselves in the rivers of Kings

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and together embrace the ancient rule of yin yang
    let's promise to center ourselves in the heart of
    tranquility, peace, courage, and community

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and bring our favorite volumes of poetry
    let's assign our own meanings
    to Sanchez, Horne, Lorde, and Heron

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and unearth the true difference between hip hop and rap
    let's critique the lyrical consciousness
    of the one set of lyrics that ring worthy in our souls

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and learn every plane and curve or each other
    let's make us a temple in itself
    and pay homage while exercising our rites of passage

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and plan for the future of our children
    let's create our own nonprofit
    to satisfy the needs of the youth

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and I'll channel Cuba while you the Dominican
    let's reestablish our roots despite of
    in spite of the transgressions of those before us

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and savor the sweetness of a Georgia Peach
    let's add in the rich, nutty flavor of pecans
    combine them bake the most succulent treat each has known

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and marvel at the pure of heart
    let's akin ourselves to their Godlike qualities
    akin ourselves so that we may become like them

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and discover each other one syllable at a time
    let's define each other by our words and actions
    leaving the confines of preconceived notions behind

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and familiarize ourselves with the other's quirks
    let's figure out how to read subtle body language
    like why i bare my shoulder while you rub your beard

    let's meet at Walden's Pond
    and leave at peace with the world
    let's give nonbelievers a glimpse of the love
    that kindred spirits can share when friendship is first formed

    let's meet at Walden's Pond

    Judging by 4Evaluv's post you have posted this somewhere else as well, if so, I hope I responded. This piece flows like a romantic river, lending itself to images of a lover's rendezvous, with lyrical poetry as the backdrop. Fabulous.
