  • A rose left on a balustrade by the Grand Basin lake in Forest Park.

    A red rose for an evening of love.

    For lovers there were,

    Many, many couples

    Entwined and kissing

    Holding hands



    But not at what I saw.

    For they were already under the spell,

    The magic dance of the Green Man,

    The green dance of love.
