Wrap Me In Love – A Quadrille – Poem of the Month – July 2022

Wrap Me In Love

Wrap me gently in your arms 
Care that my sadness brings tears
Softly murmur words of comfort 
To soothe my heart’s greatest fears

Play soft music to still my mind
Calming body and soul
Bring me tea of peppermint
This day’s taken its toll

    It doesn’t seem like too much to ask, does it? Those thoughtful, simple things mean the world on a trying day. I think peppermint tea is a sweet part of this quadrille.
