She spotted him atop the distant hill

he smiled, bestowing in her, an instant thrill

his bronze skin shone, with the midday sun

and though her heart, he had long since won

she let it be captured once again

in a way such, as it had never been

like a startled bird, who takes to flight

fluttering its wings, with all its might

this sight of him had her so transfixed

 instinctive feelings stirred into a mix

this image burned itself upon her brain

where forevermore, it would remain

on days to come, and into dreams of some

her heart would soar, only to be stopped

as she joined her sun-kissed love, upon the hill’s top
