Golden Arches*

She walked under the golden arches
Enjoying Nature's generous blessings
Laburnum in full bloom and glowing
A strong wind blew across the park
Taking with it a cloud of yellow petals
Which scattered to form a yellow carpet
Some settled on her head like confetti
She remembered her own wedding day
When she walked under artificial arches
With a groom who was artificial too, for
He left a few years after the ceremony
She now treaded very gently not wanting 
To damage the petals lying on the ground
She just wished she was not alone
The blessings would have doubled
If she were walking with her true love
Under these beautiful golden arches
