ACCOUTREMENT by Carolyn Glackin Let your love be my one and only adornment And that will be enough Let me be draped exclusively In the ornate finery that is you Let your kisses cover me from head to toe Like a sparkling gossamer gown Shining and resplendent And as soft as eiderdown Let the fiery heat of your passion Enrobe me with its sultry glow As that would be the finest garment This skin could ever know Decked out to the nines Oh how your ardour makes me shine Silky satin, so sublime It all withstands the test of time Never cold and never bare Despite the crispness of the air Your loving arms are always there They give me comfort, like a prayer Thus if I could choose one accoutrement I wouldn't mind the hue Style and fabric wouldn't matter So long as it was you So dress me in your love, my darling And I'll dress you in mine We'll revel in love's wardrobe Our sacred union, so divine.
