As The Purple Shades Of Twilight Call - Poem by David Harris

As the purple shades
of twilight call
from across the garden walls.
I hear old loves reverie
calling out to me.

Old loves refrain
calling out your name
from a distant rendezvous
with you and only you.

The strains of violins
linger on the wind,
pulling at my heartstrings
whenever I think of you.

As the purple shades
of twilight call
from across the garden walls.
Calling out of love again
as the wind whispers your name.
