Love’s Lures

Last Spring I was a guest

Wild mushrooms are hidden deep

I am sworn to secrecy

Autumn’s sunflower turns its face toward the sun

Sows its seeds and birds feed

Grapefruit subdues all other tastes

Clamoring for attention in haste

The inchworm looks harmless

Prolific and resilient

Proves to be charmless

And mistletoe a guise

A subtle surprise

When the smoke arises and embers lay ashen

True love will stand faithful in unfeigned passion
