“Eyes of Moonlit Mauve”

Her twilight eyes of moonlit mauve

could melt the hearts of those around.

With luck-of-spades her garden grew.

Her daffodils shall e’er abound.

Azaleas, sweet, and lilac-scents

surround our thoughts – like morning dew;

for like the morning glory flow’r,

her eyes shall wake amidst sky-blue.

Those sapphire eyes could mesmerize –

like spy’s surprise, she captured hearts.

A queen within her castle walls,

she aced blackjack, pot-pies, and tarts.

In meadows of magnolias,

She sings sweet songs before the King,

and dances ‘round with rainbow flow’rs –

as lilac-scents fill every wing.

Her sparkling gown is beautiful!

Her shiny hair – in soft breeze blows.

With Heaven’s scents of roses, fair,

Sweet Carol in God’s garden grows.
