Something Sweet

He said "Tell me something beautiful", He said "Tell me something sweet", "Talk about the lilacs and the lilies down beside the water's creek" But I don't talk about the golden morning's, The honey dew upon each flower; I don't talk about the daffodils, the rosie red's or the melting sky by evening's hour I don't mention all the things I've seen; Alaska's raging open sea- The endless evanescent waves sprinkling droplets over me I don't describe with whis'pry speaking how lovely are the trees; The sounds of crunching browning leaves and the finches singing keys I don't talk about the cello's drone, And each perfect note upon the sheet- I say, "You are my something beautiful. You are my something sweet."

The fact that you do not talk about "But I don't talk about the golden morning's, The honey dew upon each flower; I don't talk about the daffodils, the rosie red's or the melting sky by evening's hour" but write about it made me smile.
