Love's whisper cradles the dawn and stars glitter the canvas of a new tomorrow.
Blue notes sail across the ocean and leave behind tears of pain and sorrow
The blush of Summer dapples her eye ,
While Picasso's warmth paints the sky,
Flames of pink and gold and grey streak the horizon as dusk turns to day .
The sonnet of love locked in her soul more potent than poison more precious than gold .
The songbird of youth carries her dreams through sun and rain and Autumn's leaves
And when the thread of night appears ,
His lullaby holds her near
But then the ambush of silver lies
Cupid's arrow now bastardised !
Wisdom truth and all earth's blame
Stamp her cheek with crimson shame
Like roses that have lost their bloom
Love is always gone too soon.
