Petals perfumed for the purpose,
Sweetly scented just for us,
Scattered from above to rest abed.
Fragile flower fragments,
Tinted pink and white pigments,
Pillowing softly our two heads.
Subtly stirring in the air,
Bouquet of roses in our hair,
Drowsy opiate of love’s addiction.
We turn and gather close,
Bodies melding head to toes.
Soporific lovers’ benediction.
