Cheryl Love (1.12.1958 / Warwickshire)
As Innocent As A Frozen Rose
As delicate as a butterfly’s wing
She stood tall with dignity and grace
Then without any sort of warming
The tempo quickened its pace.
It was the Emperor’s Waltz by Strauss
And in the doorway stood the Crown Prince.
She knew nothing of him or the house
The other dancers let out a small wince.
But he had noticed th innocent young rose
In his heart and head the bells had rung
His heart was melting but his feet had froze.
She stood pretty in pink like a rosebud so young.
Their eyes met across the room and held the look
She reached for his hand, which he sealed with a kiss
The crowd parted and to the dance floor he took
His beautiful rose which was now his.
