Fairy Blues 2

Back me up in crimson shades
As sunbirds hovering in the glade
Drunk on nectar up long bills
From dancing flowers in winds so still

My ekphrastic darling, come to me
For what you get is what you see
As the world is what your eyes behold
And jungle scents that hearts enfold

Sweet is the breeze and sighs are free
And long is the night and far is the sea
Bathed in the dew my eyes are moist
Soft is the heart whose beats are voiced
