Prelude to the Night

Prelude to the Night

DULCET words were WHISPERED  in an ELOQUENT fashion
With all the SPLENDOR that was due such action.

The LAVENDER was LILTING to and fro-
FRAGRANCE WAFTING to her nose.

Wilting with rhythm of word and wain
the Lady would TRANQUIL and BLISSFUL remain.

Their romance hidden from our sight.
Something they would share that night.
