O to be in England in the early days of spring when the golden daffodils steal the heart and make it sing. Roaming the Lake District far away from urban noise, by cascading waterfalls enamoured of nature’s voice. Up the craggy mountains or on hills in shades of green, watch the sun as down it slides veiling tarns with sanguine sheen. O to be there with you holding hands in amber light basked in aural twilight field; daylight melting into night. Fireflies or fairies My mind cannot well discern. Feelings surge within my soul, Nature sighs with me and yearns. Time and breath both bated as your lips touch mine with bliss; stars aflutter, for they know Love is born with your sweet kiss. A Callman Collaboration (Paul Callus and Eileen Manassian)

Hello dear collaborator! I've been busy plastering and painting, so it took me a while to come visit our combined effort. Maybe today I'll post mine. Thank you for putting up with me:) ~ I'd like to thank all those who stopped by with awesome comments. Hugs // paul

Superb penning Eileen and Paul, really enjoyed this especially bringing in the delights of the Lake District along with romantic overtones along the way, my fav place in England which I'll not get to this year for the first time for many a year. Keep safe you too, Blessings, Gordon

Thank you, Gordon for your visit and comment. Though I've been to England, I've never been to the Lake District. I trust Paul did capture its beauty well. Blessings.

Thank you for the lovely comments, Gordon. The Lake district is beautiful and inspiring. My mother-in-law came from Whitehaven, so we were frequent visitors to the Lakes till most relatives passed away. // paul

Oh, well another seamless collaboration. I had to look at the comments to realize that you and Paul had done another poem together. Spellbinding, and written with such beautiful grace. Fantastic, you two.

You write so beautifully together Paul and Eileen. Your poem delighted me. I saw the most amazing scene on Mothers day, two children showed up in front of my house, with a paper bag and masks, They snatched one daffodil from the batch and ran home to mom . lol, I had tears in my eyes, that was a first . Love and hugs xo

Thanks for sharing your Mother's Day experience with me, Pixie Dust. Those cute little theives brought joy to their mama's heart. You were gracious to them. Thanks for your visit to this collab. Blessings.
