O’ Sweet the Air of Mountain Laurel

by jack

 

 

O’ sweet the air of Mountain Laurel

Blooms of vibrant bliss

 

Sending forth their scented praise

Upon a night like this

 

Ever fresh the evening breeze

Soft upon the sill

 

Peaceful simple pleasures flow

In your heart to fill

 

Here beneath the starry light

Of the springtime sky

 

Solitude in perfumed hints

Slowly flowing by

 

Silence whispers something

Only you can hear

 

Of your sweet surrender

Know that I am near

 

Feel your heart now beating

Quicker is the pace

 

Eyes now held believing

Fragrance found to trace

 

Stand before your window

Gazing to the ground

 

Where this Mountain Laurel treat

Surely can be found

 

There you’ll find me waiting

Neath these blooms above

 

Taking in the fragrance

Of your precious love

Wonderful imagery! The fair maiden surely has been transported under your spell. Now, if you began serenading from under that fragrant blossom I'm sure she would fall into your arms with moonlight kisses to warm you both.

Thank so much Frieda. I appreciate your kind and flattering words.
The Photo lured me in for they look so much like my favorite Lilacs.
But your words beckon my heart to dance the tune of Love.
Thank you for this dance. Your Waltz is divine.

either you are deeply in love or you are pining (beautifully) for that which you have yet to attain. either way, this is gorgeous. the couplet format brings out the gist of this piece in wonderfully romantic fashion. again, i tip my hat to you. well done!
