Romance Personified


Tranquility of the cherry blossom
Beautiful lady sits pensively
Whiling away the hours
Contemplating her destiny

Lay down your weary head to slumber
May you dream per chance
Behind the shadows of reality
Of invitation for romance

Delicate as a butterfly
Adorned in purple elegance
Errant thoughts and heart a flutter
Young girl's notion of romance

Away with the fairies
Is where she longs to be
Engulfed in nature's splendour
So she may dream of thee

The art of seduction
Unveiling eyes to fan the flame
Concealing innermost desires
Demurely playing the waiting game

The pursuit of love and happiness
Is what makes life worthwhile
Respect and honour mutually
And celebrate passion without guile

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
