Sensual Musk by Jez Farmer
The dancing daffodils are smiling here
They spread the word of life in springtime’s light
While nature speaks of love within her sight.
The rabbits chase across the fields with cheer
Without question and flirting in the warming dusk
Amid the scent of fresh and sensual musk.
The chill of winter’s night and days austere
That froze the cleansing water on the weir
It’s fading into distant mist filled dreams
As love has found you in its cosmic streams
With ev’ry breath I feel you drawing near.
My heart protests it has no worthiness
To see your smile or touch your loveliness
In you I breathe again with love not fear
