Enraptured by her beauty he could think of nothing else

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Perennial” by Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer: root, perfume, follow, bloom, word, persist, fragrant, trust, act, forgotten, find, field

enraptured by her beauty

he could think of nothing else

following her bloom so mutely

finding the fruit in the field so juicy

forgotten to breathe oh his pulse

enraptured by her beauty

just her fragrance makes him woozy

trusting and persisting on his impulse

following her bloom so mutely

her every word he acts on duty

rooted here and nowhere else

enraptured by her beauty

her perfume’s like a jewelled ruby

soft breeze in the air pulse

following her bloom so mutely

he’s in love with his Judy

she and nobody else

enraptured by her beauty

following her bloom so mutely*
