NOCTURNE

A secret whispered on the wind,
The forest wise would keep,
As gentle moonshy babes were rocked,
Into a silent sleep.

Discarded clothes from naked trees,
Lay scattered on the floor,
And laid the path of true romance,
Towards a welcome door.

For in this lowly Woodman's rest,
True Magic played her hand,
And well prepared a fledgling nest,
For lovers to command.

So there we lay as lantern's flame,
Did flicker imps of light,
Which danced and laughed 'cross bodies bare,
And teased us through the night.

Brushed against a bed of furs,
Your touch was so divine,
Entwined and tumbled laughing wild,
Becoming yours and mine!.

The Time,The moment and the love,
Were ours to hold tonight,
As high we rose above the clouds,
Engulfed by passion's flight.

And if tomorrow bears no name,
And melts like gentle snow,
I know this night will warm my heart,
Because i love you so!
