Silver Willow

The willow leaves take on a silver glow
As lunar light foretells of love tonight
That speaks without uttering worldly sound
And leaves the senses rippling to the ground
In lucent passions the soul makes its flight
Beneath the boughs of the weeping-willow
O sweet this love that quenched my seething thirst
With gentle touch and a desirous look
The smile, the warmest smile to light my fire
My love you are all I ever require
You are every chapter in the book
In these moments my heart is set to burst
My senses dance as my heart does back flips
When loving words echo upon your lips
