The Scent of Her


The smell of her hair
Perfume everywhere,
I was lost in the
Scent of her being.

The fragrance of lilac
Was all around her.
I knew it was she
Without even seeing.

The remembered perfume
Inside every room
Where she’d been
Had me believing

That not even the flower
Could smell as sweet
As I inhaled her
By simply breathing.

And so my love
Your scent stays with me
Always and forever
Never leaving.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
