This work has reached the exceptional level
The fate of two lovers unfolds.
"The Flowers in Your Hair" by Jacqueline O.
The first time that I saw you
we were at the county fair,
and as you moved from booth to booth
I simply stopped to stare.
The supple swaying of your walk
was quite beyond compare,
but the first thing that I noticed was
the flowers in your hair.

Enchanted I approached you
when you were unaware,
I softly asked you for your name
and gave you mine to pair.
I took you to the cider mugs
and pulled you up a chair,
ensnared by every petal of
the flowers in your hair.

We talked and talked as people walked
around us, well aware
that we were growing quite attached
and had our hearts to share.
And when the daylight died to dusk,
we had us not a care,
for in that moment I had kissed
the flowers in your hair.

Well spring rolled round, and summer came,
I harnessed plough to mare,
and sowed the seeds of happiness,
so joyful and so rare.
But age comes swift, and night is black,
young lovers all beware,
for Death stole by and turned to ash
the flowers in your hair.
