A Beautiful Day in my Mind

by Heather's Starting End


It’s a beautiful day in my mind
Visions that I’ve never seen
Gas lamps light the cobble stone streets
Merchants work
With pride and esteem

Exchanged is a nod and a gentle smile
As gracious kind people pass by
On a bridge rhythmic clicks
Echoes proud horses shoes
Still waters running high

In this vision of mine
On this eve of ash dusk
A gentleman strolls by tall

Dressed with grace
Of long cloth splendor
Perfumed with air of the Fall

Lady on arm
Her boots finely laced
A pillar of beauty so fine
Rests dark auburn hair on the nape of her neck
Rose scented skin divine

The intimate love
Seen in their eyes
Obscures all I see

A time, a street a bridge a love
A place in dreams for me.
