A daydreamy rondel about the bliss of being alone together. I'm not typically one for slant rhyme; let me know if you think it works here.

A Pair of Trees

My love and I: a pair of trees
Entangled at the root and crown,
Yet growing sep'rate from the ground
With independent memories.

Sweet flowers crowd about our knees,
And vines entwine us up and down.
My love and I, a pair of trees,
Entangled at the root and crown.

We bend and sway where'er we please,
Each shrouded in a verdant gown.
Free rein and fealty both abound:
No further wants have we than these;
My love and I, a pair of trees.

A resounding success, a delightful take on love.

I love the imagery in this rondel! It feels serene and content in a way that makes me feel the love you're describing
