Lilacs and apricots


The time in this kingdom
between lilacs and apricots,

when rainbows are bridges
and nights are cool,

when fate is as silent
as the tombs are still,

the throne is for children
to ascend at will.

The beauty in our world is here in your words, William.

I do wish that we could pass onto our children and grandchildren only the beautiful parts of life and keep the ogres hidden away in a place where they can harm none~

In fairy tales and dusty trunks. Many thanks, Jan.
