In Wonderment

Tied ribbons into bows to adorn your hair,
silken sheen with swishes in swirling air
Knotted streams of scarlet for tresses of gold -
braided with highlights from a sunrise on hold

Spangles for a jewel untouched by time,
score of beauty - like winds into a chime
Nimble and spry, lovely merriment's show,
proving angels do fly in a halo's glow

Ruffles and pleats forming garments to wings,
with extended arms - a world of magic sings
Tiptoeing in step to a roundabout ode,
eyes filled in wonderment as dreams unfold

Past castles for kings awaits a far dell,
love me or not, daisy's petals will tell
One by one, plucked betwixt finger and thumb,
whispers seek a favored heart in the sum

To where flowers beckon, and blossoms speak,
all in a land of imagined mystique
Traveling to faraway - new worlds appear
even the face on the moon approaches near

Exhaled long breaths - as fantasies come in sight
playtime gives chase to another day's delight
Nary a care on paths to make believe,
wherein lies your own beauty - for you to see
