A fragrance sweeter than a young man's dreams
So permeated the warm evening air
That I first restlessly stirred, then left my chair,
Though rather old to go to such extremes --
For seeking origin of perfume seems
Not quite appropriate. I found you there
In your garden, smiling. Through your soft brown hair
A shimmer of silver hesitantly streams.
My beautiful, the years to come are ours,
For though these blossoms waited for the moon
They profited the more by daytime showers,
Gaining a quality too rare for noon,
Even as yours. Late blooming gives you powers
Surpassing any known to brides of June.
