The Garden Rendezvous - CM


Your face that night matched the brilliance
of the light from the moon
shining down on the rose garden
of our first rendezvous.

The flowers all around us blushed
to see our lustful kiss,
and  their hundreds of eyes beheld
your radiant beauty.

Oh, the poet's keen eyes, through which I saw this moonlit garden! Or maybe I was a flower. Congrats, Andrea)
