THE REASON BEING
Crunch colour and lace
Who sets the pace

Just because, angels respond
Not every sylph will be blonde

Falling lilacs when they carpet
dull spaces in their contacts

Break the spell of doldrums
Even now Spring time comes

  6. Here's to a variety of colors, among sylphs and otherwise! Also, I like that word "crunch" at the beginning -- it made me think of the lace as kind of stiff and crispy.
