Turned-down petals ready for kissing. Her glove
So velveteen;  and with unseen love
A teardrop of silver dews on her gentle curve nigh
In hope that  a lover may pass close by.
I hesitate to touch so fragile a creature
For she may be the last of summer,
In a once jostling garden proud and crowded within.
Her bouquet is subtle, is freshly-washed skin: 
I feel the perfume of her soaped damask
On the  warm air of evening.  She does not ask
As the sun withdraws his glowing approval,
But here I remain  -  her only admirer and thrall.
