Tulip swaggered across savannah,
genuine love lounged at delta,
lagoon blues made frantic plea,
on rocky plains, their chalice nestled.
Curve and edges spoke of her origin,
tall and slender trumpeted his,
till labour ceased on moorish birth,
feeling was just a babbling toddler.
Seven seasons, a cathedral bell rang,
raffia mat hosted passions,
eros performed in daily excitement,
bloody libation at bridal dusk.
Canaries warbled over Savannah,
buried sett sprang to life,
tender breasts sprinkled dews,
on fragile heart in a nursery ward.
