Temptation

Lets braid our hair with flowers And dip our toes in spring Lets throw our leaves into the wind And feel warm zephyrs on our skin Lets get drunk on our hot breath lie in long grass ‘neath the tree and sink our teeth in blushing fruit Then you can wipe the juice from me lets crush the daises in the grass ignore the serpent there we’ll caress the earth below us With our bodies bare Don’t be coy now, take my hand New pleasures we will seek I’ll guide you to the brightest light And in rapture we will sleep
