Blossom ~ Romance #1
Blossoming youth, like the promise of Spring, soaring with hope like a bird on the wing.
Waiting and wond'ring with time yet ahead, of what life shall bring, oh come "joy" and not dread...
Will I be tall like a towering pine? Will I climb high like a tendrilous vine?
Will I be wise, will my soul act with care? Will I be slow to step into a snare?
Will I be pretty, (just wond'ring, you know), although it won't matter as far as Love goes.
I daydream and wonder, my thoughts wide asunder ...
and hope I'll be ready, prepared, strong and steady.
