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)

Oh my!! This is so beautiful and romantic. Seems nature softly lingers, while love collides. Your thoughts take me there in the moment. I think it is both- Fireflies and Fairies. Leaving hearts in complete awe. A wonderful collaboration Paul and Eileen. :) Brandy

Absolutely lovely, Paul. I haven't seen/read "tarn" in a long time. Love that word for some reason.

Well written romantic collaboration Paul and Eileen, I was there last year for a few days. It is as you discribe; a beautiful place and of course I visited William Wordsworths House in Cockermouth. You wouldn't be disappointed if you ever get the chance to go. Tom

Thank you Tom. My wife's mum came from Whitehaven, we used to go to the Lakes quite often when my in-laws were still alive. Haven't been there for about 5 yrs (we now stay in a B&B in Keswick.) ~ Regards // paul
