Song: The Gardens Of Love - Poem by David SmithWhite

One day, out of the blue,
I saw, something in you.
I was bewitched and beguiled;
you were a wonderful child.

One day, into my world,
you came, an innocent girl.
You made my reasoning whirl.
You made the seasons unfurl;
petals now open, will slowly uncurl,
when walking the gardens of love.

When walking the gardens
of bliss and idyll,
Look out for the stalking
wolf on the kill.
All hard charm and manners,
his liquid eye spills
on the flesh and cheap glamour,
of plush working girls.

One day, old became new,
I saw, something in you.
Some half-remembered truth;
the lost dreams of my youth.

When walking the gardens
of bliss and idyll.
go lightly on footsteps
not pack march or drill.
Keep talking in whispers
with voice not too shrill;
and beware the beg pardons
of the gold-digger's shill.

One day, out from the cold,
you came: a porcelain doll;
lacquered with magic - a fine tragic soul,
a rich china piece that I devoured whole;
I was trapped in your tangent beyond my control,
walking the gardens of love.
Walking the gardens of love.
