Faltering footsteps

Did you hear our footsteps?
As they crunched over the gravel
Dodging inky puddles
That mirrored the mist
In undetermined haste.

Did you hear our footsteps?
Walk over the moist leaves
An odd dry one crackled
The rest mumbled in
muffled resigned protests .

Did you hear our footsteps?
They fell into a strange harmony
Rising and falling against a time
that had slowed down
in this shivering night.

Did you miss our footsteps?
As you walked over this morning
The puddles had dried themselves
Of fear. For there would be no feet
Dodging their wily faces tonight.
