 ramblings and things


Oh they danced so exuberantly
Each wearing a floral hat
She in formal ballroom gown
He in evening suit and spats.
They passed a wine bottle
Which each raised to their lips
Their faces showing pleasure
With each deliberate sip.
Then he slipped his arm around her
As they slid into clingy smoochy dance
As if they knew this moment was transient
To be enjoyed while they had the chance

A fine summer's morning
After a summer evenings ball;
A matron and her squire,
Having enjoyed all,
Now taking a last ounce of fun
Before returning to other lives.
Maybe to children, families
Husbands, lovers, wives.
A limousine appeared.
He handed her in at last
Raised a floral hat in goodbye
As it drove her slowly past
