Sonnet Xx: Garden Of The Heart

Splendid verdant form awakes at dawn of day
with crowning gift offered gracefully on high,
to touch the promise of cresting suns ray...
A floral offering to fathomless sky.

In fervent, mystic, granted wish
time ephemeral does grant to cease
as rapture swirls bejeweled to kiss,
the gladdened neck of impassioned peace.

Arms entwine, refreshed anew.
Vibrant beauty aglow in youthful blush!
A sharing in union of morning dew -
Oh gardens bliss in full crimson flush!

Dear grandest blossom, bursting heart divine,
shall forever cherished be, within this garden mine.
