The golden moments go on...
The magnificent magnolia,
and the graceful gardenia
adorn the garden
like archangels in residence.
Their white gleaming blossoms
their delicious spreading fragrance
remind me of many moonlit kisses
we exchanged under the silent summer skies.
The ardor and passion of those heady nights
matured into love and inseparable oneness
of later summers enveloped in the deepening
scent of the jasmine, the rose, the night queen.
Like the cool moonlight, like the soft starry skies
our love and moonlit kisses are an eternal delight.
