In the orangery, her face glows
as sunstreaks rain like the snowfall.
A white bud stem her fingers pin.
Hush blush is her alabaster skin.
Her eyes focus to a book below,

hair unmoved from the wind blow,
similar to her thoughts running slow.
She sits calm, hand under her chin,
in the orangery.

Air dances, citrus smell swings a let go
sweetness dazzle an overflow.
It mimics, the lady's chaste grin
unhidden from her lashes spin.
Her beauty and the tangerine bulbs flow,
in the orangery.

***Orangery - these are 17th to 19th century ground buildings with classical architectural designs...It is same as a greenhouse or conservatory where citrus trees are kept and saved from frost. It symbolizes wealth and prestige as they are also gardens... :)
