Within The Forest

By A. Gagliardi


The garden nymph and woodland Satyr

made love within the forest.

Upon the moss strewn rocks of shade

their twinned heads came to rest.

Through dappled trees, their love-born sighs

strolled on the summer breezes.

The gauze of silk she wore that day

was rent with love’s sweet squeezes.

Fluttering wings and rapid hearts played

music soft and mellow.

The rustling leaves cocooned their love

in hues of reds and yellow.

Late summer blossoms bust with joy

and spent their flower fragrance.

While Autumn’s chill whispered true

the poetry of romance.
