Flora’s Secret

Lovers  in  the  long  grass look  above  them,
only  they  can  see where  the  clouds  are  going,
only  to  discover dust  and  sunlight
ever  make  the  sky  so  blue.

Afternoon  is  hazy, river  flowing,
all  around  the  sounds
moving  closer  to  them, telling  them  the  story
told  by  flora, dreams  they  never  knew.

Silver  willows, tears  from  Persia,
those  who  come from  a  far-off  island,
Winter  chanterelle  lies under  cover,
Glory-of-the-sun  in  blue.

Some  they  know  as  passion, some  as  freedom,
some  they  know  as  love and  the  way  it  leaves  them,
Summer  snowflake for  a  season
when  the  sky  above  is  blue,
when  the  sky  above  is  blue.

Lying  in  the  long  grass close  beside  her
giving  her  the  name of  the  one  the  moon  loves,
this  will  be  the  day  she will  remember
when  she  knew  his  heart  was

loving  in  the  long  grass close  beside  her
whispering  of  love and  the  way  it  leaves  them
lying  in  the  long  grass in  the  sunlight,
they  believe  it’s  true  love,

and  from  all  around  them flora’s  secret
telling  them  of  love and  the  way  it  breathes
looking  up  from  eyes  of  amaranthine
they  can  see  the  sky  is  blue,

knowing  that  their  love  is  true,
dreams  they  never  knew,
and  the  sky  above  is  blue.
