Flowers for Her Hair

 Pour mon cher amis avec beaucoup d’amour !

 
White violets I’ll gather          
To weave for her hair,          
And tender narcissus,   
      
Dark hyacinth too.          
Then I’ll braid it with crocus  
        
And lace it with lilies,   
     
And crown it with roses, red roses of love.         
When I place my garland         
On her scented brow,  
       
Bright petals will fall         
Like soft rain in her hair.         
         

 
Meleagros 1st Century B.C.          
 
From The Castle Lady con baci moltissimo !   
 
Note: My apologies to those who have requested to be friends and were turned down.
I have recently experienced some trouble with the request box and e-mails requests and have not been able to add anyone.
Please try again later. Thanks !
                   
Like a windstorm punishing the oak trees, love shakes my heart. -Sappho
