Autumnal Tease

Deep within the emerald, jaded summers days Whilst Mother Nature dances Exotically lays In the eyes and minds of human folk Autumn Elf clambers up Deep amongst the trees To whisper words To tempt her From summers verde beam At first she is easily distracted As a beautiful fledgling flirt Yet slowly Through Autumns persistent promises He softly tempts her She settles down beside him engrossed in smouldering embers mirth And whilst his teasing Tongue and breath Does tinker on her cheek The cloak of limes and lemon trees Does Very Slowly Slip To reveal one precious summer bronzed shoulder (at this point) Autumn Elf Aware his seduction does so succeed He offers up his golden cap Whilst bowing on one knee As after all she is his queen The one for whom he yearns And waits silently within the trees For her glorious return.
