Venus Gifts A Yarrow's Kiss
Oh, weeping willow shed your sorrow
on whispering breeze to soothe your grief
within whose breaths a healing yarrow
to whisk away tears upon your leaf.
Sweet rustling zephyrs embraced in sway
misty-eyed murmurs mournful wind-song
a wistful heart in bosom ballet
as shadows dancing with currents throng.
Weep not, soulful shimmer neath sun’s gold
for chartreuse vines fly the west winds’ bend
enlightenment seeps in roots to hold
as yarrow's pink kisses blown to mend.

*the Yarrow flower of any color (I chose pink..), as a fragrant herb of Venus, is symbolic of a loving healer of a broken heart*
