Fields of Green Velvet

Lay me down gently in fields of green velvet
Resting beneath the blue gossamer sky
Where I may gaze upon clouds of white cotton
Shimmering dragonflies floating on by

Mingling there amongst red satin petals
Yellow and silver, with gold all around
Captured by nature’s soft breathtaking beauty
Gracing the heavens, adorning the ground

There shall I tarry in peaceful devotion
Breathing the fresh and sweet pine-scented air
Feeling the warmth of the sun cast around me
Free from all worry and heartache and care

Come, won’t you join me, to feel all this splendour
There in your mind where such fantasies dwell
Dance with me, sing with me, and then surrender
Each of your cares, and fall under my spell

    Wow Valerie fields of green Valerie must be a beautiful place
    to lie down. Your use of vivid colors really adds a sense of lightness
