Candles and wildflowers

Sure I enjoy the scent of candles Watching the flame dance upon top of the mantle Beautiful reflections and silhouettes all aglow Flickering flame swaying to and fro For the fragrance I'm seeking an imposter won't do Sorry my beloved candles when Spring and Summer come so ends our sacred rendezvous You're a lovely substitute and put on a great show We'll reunite in cold weather and special occasions until then on hold our love will still grow Plant me in a field of wildflowers Help me to bud and blossom with a light misted Spring shower Bask in the aromas brought out stronger by the warmth of the sun Mmm sweet heavenly scents that can't be outdone Natural essence and beauty one can't imitate Such beautiful feelings it stirs to initiate Too long I've improvised with fake for real No clone or replica will do to seal the deal While willows weep and flowers sleep The sweetest of dreams I shall keep Plucking a bouquet of pretty posies Singing and dancing with my kids to ring around the rosie

"for the fragrance I'm seeking, an imposter won't do." Love this line! I really like the whole poem; and it describes my feelings for spring too.
