The Willows

'Twas all but bare and fresh~frosted the morn
that I, still in nightdress, pulled slowly the door
and saw, through nighttime's long escape
'pon hallowed well, the ancient cape.
Nobility's cloak, 'twas lost it seemed
'neath mossy stones and misted dream.
And out I slipped to stroke its sleeve,
inhale its fragrant ageless weave.
And with each breath my mem'ry strayed
to the willows, the dewstrokes, the kisses' cascade.
As embraces, most humble in honor's recline,
rising treasures awakened, passion's gasp nonconfined.
And as I drew inward this christened cloak's scent,
'twas the willows at daybreak ... discovery's intent.

Dear LadyClaire

Oh, I just loved the feel of this--so lovely.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

The Willows do have a flavor of their own, don't they? You've captured it nicely......

Deborah, thank you...so glad you found beauty in this.
Hoot Owl, thank you...don't think I'm ready for publication though, but thank you just the same for your kind comment. Seems the heart trips a more tender gait when sharing the wonder of words.
