The Lover's Boat -- a Play it Again Challenge poem

"The Lovers' Boat" Albert Pinkham Ryder 1881
The Lover's Boat
The sun has risen, flowers are awake
Wake up little lovers, they're calling you
We've seen it all, asleep still in embrace
No movement from them is seen, still they sleep
All night long they embraced and cooed and kissed
Time to go now, a blossom for your hair
Smell the fragrance sweet! Awake now she is
Alluring and fresh, what about her guy?
Kiss him on his brow, then his ear you kiss
He will smell you sweet and reciprocate
Awaken he does, and kisses her sweetly
Sweeter than the flowers, Your boat awaits
Into the sunset he rows while she sings
Love songs they are, tonight another beach

This is a lively conversational piece, Jim. Great response to the art and the flower theme.

words and actions are often far more lasting than flowers. Very sweet.
