On Lavender Lane

by ianblackpoet

On Lavender Lane, you entranced my eyes
And set my heart to flight.
You made me a fool when I’d once been so wise,
There was no escaping my plight.
On Lavender Lane, the sun on your back,
You moved with a dancer’s grace.
As all things around you had faded to black,
As all I could see was your face.
On Lavender Lane, you took my hand
And gave me sweet embrace,
My love held me firm as words turned to sand
And I neither knew season nor place.
On Lavender Lane, I was no longer shy,
But taken by silent bliss.
On Lavender Lane, we said our goodbyes
And we parted with a kiss.
