With such feminine flamboyancy this maiden sways in breathtaking movements flashing, flitting, flaming a sweet minuet-- beneath a mural of moonlight’s alchemy, her flared gown fair as sequined feathers that midway, in birdsong's sultry melody, her flight of fancy floats on my garden- floor and like a magical sylph in tints of magenta, she mingles with blooms on lawn's mainstage— oh this femme fatale; a Mayflower, mantling the pageant of summer's first festival!
