Lemon Trees

I know the land where the lemon-trees flower.
My love met me near them, to linger an hour.
I kissed him, I hugged him and smelled the sweet scent,
And prayed it stayed with him, wherever he went.
The day was so perfect, the skies were so blue.
The fragrance entrancing and love was so new.
He broke off a blossom and gave it to me,
And promised his love for an eternity.
My friends were so happy to plan bridal showers
And my wedding bouquet was of lemon-tree flowers.

Oh, this IS lovely, Joyce. I don't know if it is based on reality, but I imagine lemon-tree flowers would have a very nice scent. Best wishes in the contest. (The extra syllable you had in that line from your limerick could have easily been changed and I think that's how you read it. I read it a few times and thought I knew hat you intended to write.) Maybe Santa will bring you a poetry notebook. They're lovely prizes. Hugs, Carolyn
