cotton candy spun clouds in a field of pale blue
lone bird sits high atop the barren silver maple branches
one might think it were a different season…
sink your teeth into treats and immerse your imagination
into spring and a picnic and homemade cookies
to be judged and tasted in an old historical home
where past a president pondered the affairs of states
on an old rolling Virginian Plantation that once was enveloped
in silence and shuttered against dawns and dusks, that is once
again being revitalized and becoming a grand Belle for the ball.
