In The Strolling Players' Park

In the strolling players' park
When people stop one day
It’s just to pluck a little love
And bliss, for an hour’s stretch
And so to warm their hearts again
 
Yet in days gone by, in the time of kings
A legend held that flowers always
Beneath their velvets hid love potions
And their hurt in a perfume
To entice the players in
 
In the strolling players’ park
Some thoughts bloom for a day
By chalking words of love
On parchment paths
Sprung from a player’s heart
 
And if now and then, in the time of kings
They invented a few legends
The minstrels in their patter
Hid scraps of words
Which fate was to restore
Through all the days and ways
 
In their parchment parks
The players grow old one day
While writing messages of love
And their bliss, for an hour’s stretch
Will come and warm your heart once more
 
If their thoughts may have faded
You mustn’t shed tears
Their thousand dews have settled
Since then, the centuries have passed
And hurt is just a perfume
In the strolling players’ park
 
Thanks!
