|~ Pool of Willowfalls ~

Wildflowers bountiful - I'd picked my basket full
Quite exhausted being in the heat, it was then I saw the pool...
Crystal clear - it lay below - a splendid waterfall
surrounded by lush willowtrees that loomed above it all.
I thought, "Why not, I'll take a swim, there's no one here but me..."
So I slipped my dress up o'er my head & draped it on a tree -
Heavy spray from off the falls - kissed my salty skin
I closed my eyes & took a breath & gracefully dove in.
The waters swirling round me nearly took my breath away
Cool and swift caressing me - I could have swam all day...
I floated on my back, slightly warmed by shadowed sun
My long hair all around me - here with nature, I was one.
My skin shimmered bright, as the sun shone all around
Still thrilled that here indeed, this place called Willowfalls, I'd found.
Reluctantly, with one last dip - I smoothed back all my hair,
but as I stepped out from the pool, I found my dress no longer there...
My basket still lay on the ground, "Now where could that dress be?"
I stood there naked 'neath the trees, felt someone watching me...
I saw no movement, heard no sound, but certainly felt "eyes"
'Twas then a shy but fine young man, stepped out to my surprise.
O'er his shoulder was my dress - on his face, the broadest smile...
"Mi-lady, I must know your name, I've been here for awhile."
I stood in disbelief, he mesmerized me with his stare...
His eyes green as the meadow, traveled o'er my body bare.
'Twas if I'd lost my voice, I tried to speak but no sound came...
We stood there in the sunlight - face to face, but with no shame.
"I've been searching for so long," the words came softly from his lips,
as he helped me with my dress, I felt his trembling fingertips.
His hands then found my back, I quenched his thirst, he drank of me -
We fell in love at Willowfalls - beneath a willowtree...
