Lingering In Desire

Lift your eyes and gaze upon this flower who worships you with her heart on display A bud on trellis, twined in your tower now opens her fragile bloom for you today If you would pluck me from my vine tonight it would bring blush to petals crimson red What joy if my fragrance, in pale moonlight gives cause for you to place me on your bed Tis there I shall wither until my death content to die pillowed so near to you Lingering in desire of your next breath more thirsty am I for love than for dew Dream of the flower who for love has died Life surrendered for a night at your side
