I await the blooming of lavender
and a visit to the lavender farm
where I give myself over to splendor
walking through rows of varieties.
Ah, scent of the blooming lavender.
Sellers of oils, candles, and honey
welcome customers of every gender,
to sample their wares. Musicians serenade,
artists display paintings, and vendors
sell clothing woven from wool of alpacas,
who are always on hand for blooming of lavender.
