26: a leader or a follower?

Perfect. My walking group splits into 3 pairs on the plateau.

You lead by walking faster.
We follow by engaging
in intense conversation.
In between are the ones
admiring homes built
to fulfil romantic fantasies:
the portico, the mullioned
windows, the gazebo -
although full of weeds -
and circular driveways.
Oh yes, and grecian urns.
Meanwhile the civilised world
if there is one is agog
with a fairytale wedding.
