A little lavender rises to my nose, calls
Provence memories on the plan and drives me
maybe once briefly a tear in the eyes.
Already it is wiped away again. Nonsense, just no
Gradually, everything becomes softer, slightly powdery and
Iris-muted, a bit of sage and maybe some
Narcissus are still in the game, rich green forest moss
