Savouring delights of a date.

Feel tranquility under the canopy of heaven -
Where stars wear the twinkle of chloroform.......
Beneath the blanket of black rests the night.

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
