She wore a raisin ruffle dress while

He had a complementary mulberry tie on.

Her eyes gallivanted towards his hands that

Held the most beautiful bouquet of periwinkles,

Then to the fancy glasses of bubbling red wine

That stood on the violet table cloth,

Then the lilac decor, so serene

And passionate indigo curtains.

From the pocket of his dress pants,

Came a huge amethyst ring and

A magenta blush crept to her cheeks

And she couldn’t bring her plum lips to settle, for

She remembered how she had once said that

She revered the colour purple.
