BEFORE THE PETALS FALL
Fragrance beyond perfume
An intoxicating beauteous bloom
Kissable touchable tender lips
Numberless pert petal tips -
As scented wavelets pause
Mid sea and shores -
Bathing in the soft light
So subtle so slight
Till they blush shady-hued.
Never before viewed;
Never look again nor speak
Of this fragile moment unique:
Smoothly silken like the tress
On a young girl’s best dress
Folded and curved, and in the breeze moved.
Peached and heliotroped and mauved,
In recumbent cascading
Layers pressed together and fading,
Edged and fronded in frills pink
Of trembling readiness on the brink
To float down to the shore -
One touch and they are no more.
