Food for Thought-The Redolent Fragrance of Love


Love’s redolent fragrance beckons,
Shall I draw near?
Inhaling deeply while I pass,
Absolving my pensive trance,
Be not removed from my presence,
Permit me to gaze in this moment of chance,
In you I read the enchanted remains,
Of all Aphrodite so gently brings.
