The Arbor

Beneath floral laden arbor,
love sought is never denied.
Heart's dark plaguing shadows,
find nowhere to reside.

Array of tailored blossoms-
harbor no stinging nettles.
Offer within sheltered bay-
bears your silken petals.

Comfort found in longed embrace,
always clad with sweetened veil.
Pondered scenes from wishful dreams-
follow close in myriad detail.

Opened eyes deliver your thoughts;
image evoked awaits you here.
In my arms is where it dwells;
surrounding blossoms always near.

Blemished hopes from foolish care,
deceits guised in offered bouquet.
Sordid scourge from wilted bundle,
finds no keep in arbors stay.
