 ANTEBELLUM



Strolling by the lake across from Sugar Street
Nestled by the scented grassy knolls
A lone southern belle, inside the evening strolls
Sipping julep, whispering of things discreet



Gossamer streamers, boughs majestic green
Floating gardens, skim heaven's shell
The azure waters, a quaint wishing well
A southern plantation, a summery scene



Giant magnolias, sleeping down by the swings
Lending aromatic memories with a sigh
Silken clouds, meandering by
Curled inside the breeze that paradise brings


Past white cotton fields, our eyes behold
A train lends a tapestry of steam
A windblown shadow, no longer a dream
The colors swaying in proud reddish gold



Into a ballroom with its mystic lights
Moonlight spills into our glass of wine
A waltz is playing, your song and mine
Across Sugar Street~summery southern nights
