She Wore Flowers - Poem by Stacey Knippenberg Ricci

She wore flowers in her hair
Against hazy winter skies

He acknowledged beauty there
As seen only through his eyes.

She touched cool wind with outstretched arms
And a relinquished tender heart.

He watched her standing near the edge
But their journey kept them apart.

Fly by me on gold green wings
Against a crimson sky

Bow your head as angels sing
And wait for time to pass us by.

She held him softly in her troubled mind
For she knew she had his love,

He grasped her hand and holding tight
He pulled her from above.

She fell into his arms,
And collapsed against his chest

She begged him to confirm
And to what he would attest.

He whispered softly against
Her lips a soft forbidden tale,

Of passing time, and starlit skies
And of love that would not fail.

Fly by me on gold green wings
Against a crimson sky

Bow your head as angels sing
And wait for time to pass us by.
