Seventeen By the glow of the embers, Can you feel my gaze? In the sweet misty scent of this soft summer’s eve, Can you not feel the passion Coursing in my veins? Will you not look upon my devotion?
Seventeen By the flickering flame With the moon on your skin, With the scent of perfume On the soft summer wind, Does the warmth of near-touching Make your heart pound within? Can you not feel my hand upon yours?
Seventeen By the call of a loon, By a lake, late at night, With our lips, close, now touching, With this kiss by starlight, With my heart held for ransom, With your arms holding tight, Have we now changed from friends into lovers? /TKT
