Nectar naked honey buzzed
To sweeten love’s desire
Honeycombed that moment
In summers sunshine’s fire
Sweet the scented roses white
Petal clouds from puffing trains
Captured dew drops diamond dew
In colours pale restrained
Our love it turned the corner
It’s crisp green shoots fade
In the shadows of the mountain
Where it’s green grass garden made
A nest of loves sunshine
Laid on a mossy carpet that natures magic laid.
