I was inspired to write two poems with this line, (thanks Marilyn!) the other, sadder version is in Dark Passions.

----------------------------------------------------
In the twilight, loves' last blooming
Begins to form and to take shape
The moon hangs in the sky, bright and looming
As they run along the beach toward the end of the cape.

His hand caresses her face
As if he were opening the petals of a rose
He does it with such skill and such grace
That every second that passes, her love for him grows.

She takes his hand, presses it to her heart
He feels it beating softly, gently, only for him
The brightness of her love showed from the start
Making his world not so lonely, his life not so dim.

In the twilight, loves' last blooming petal
Falls on her cheek from the tree above
She stirs next to him, then again begins to settle
Never have they known such ecstasy, never have they known such love.

----------------------------------------------------

How'd I do Marliyn?
