Come, Come where Blossoms Bloom



 (click link to see gorgeous blossom)


Come, see where blossoms bloom
Before the sweet of fruit
And leaf returns to root
Hope spills its half-bud plume

Come, stroll where dreaming roof
Is fraught with fragrant flow’r
Before the bleeding bow’r
Bends low with harvest-proof

…and here we, arm in arm
‘neath virgin canopy
Of what is yet to be
Taste youth in all its charm

Come, come where blossoms bloom
Too soon the fruit will fall
Its musky madrigal
Filling thought’s holding-room
