Herb Song

Herb Song

 

I note where once her

Feet and skirts caressed

The meadow lightly

 

There the scent of wild

Herbs rose to satisfy the

Senses and then did follow

 

Wild mint and oregano

Each scythe scared yet served

To perfume my ladies hem

 

Mowed and harvested before

A pre dawn swift departure

And leaving not a scar behind

 

Sweet lemon balm and sage

When placed upon

The pulse of lovers then

 

Did serve to rouse and

Please then calm

The most ardent of libidos

 

Yes where her

Feet and skirts caressed

The meadow lightly

 

Twas there the very scent

And taste of wild herbs rose

To treat their bodies fondly

          Erm, greetings on this wet morn too! Here it is anyway, I'm glad someone's enjoying themselves. Fido won't let me have any 'ardent libido'. He says it will be too much for me! lol. I wish I was less sheltered in life sometimes. lol.

            No dinner today, for the smell of herbs is the appetizer, and the entrée is the presence of me lady.

            I can see the meadows and smell the herbs and feel her presence, by reading your words alone.

                    Sense of smell reigns supreme for it takes the mind to where it was when wonders were performed, where life was sharp and pointed, where days were full and nights exhausted and love.... love was loving.

                    • Neville

                      those were the days and we were those knights..... cheers and thanks for jogging my memory sire.... N

                      Thanks for sharing NEVILLE ~ very very aromatic indeed. As part of my Job in Applied Science ~ I teach Food Science and the whole panoply of Herbs is very very important. They can make or break a dish. Many Poeple over season and with Meat it is better to stick with one key flavour ! Lamb ROSEMARY ~ Beef HORSERADISH ~ Pork APPLE ~ Turkey REDCURRENT ~ Venison GARLIC & SAGE ~ Duck LEMON ZEST & ROSEMARY and Gammon is ameliorated by THYME !
                      Angela & I love to cook and when we are married (2020) we will hav e a large kitchen and a large vegetable & herb garden ! ANGELA uses lots of essential oils (Geraniol ~ Limonene ~ Pinene ~ Jasmine ~ Rose Oil ~ Coconut Oil etc in AROMATHERAPY !

                      Blessings & Peace & Joy
                      Yours BRIAN & ANGELA 💙🧡💙🧡
