A LITTLE GIRL AND A MAN

*at the entrance to Queen’s Theatre, London*

.

.

My trench coat's trimmed with small details

That may remind of foggy days 

Spent in the land

Of lords and weeds

From Irish Sea with greyish sands.

.

My dress with bow - la nuit d'été,

Designed for small french cabarets,

At glance too short yet keeps the zest.

And limerence betrays my breath

.

Your boutonnière rose, it’s snow-white

And sheds a fragrance of delight.

Your eyes that shine, your mouth that grins

Electrify me from within

.

My trench coat’s off now, shoulders bared,

You’re guessing on my lingerie set.

Semi-discerned under the gown,

Lace straps must be quite eloquent.

.

Bravo, Monsieur, good choice you maid

Inviting me to Wilde's play...

.

A week ago you reached to me

As I stood by the office door.

Stretched out your hand, just as if we

Had been intimate friends before.

.

A snow white envelope I took,

Questioning: ' lord! For whom the news?'

You bowed. No way my heart mistook,

Yet to believe my mind refused.  

.

'My dear lady, at first glance

Your view assured my soul for good.

And you should see this play...'                            

                                                    I gasped. 

For God rewarded my pursuit!

 * * *

And later on he gripped her tight

Barely she uttered "Sir, good night"..

A wave of rage and shame and pride

Fused with sweet fondness in her mind 

.

With love her bosom overwhelmed,

At last He’s holding her! She’d melt!

But anguish dashed ov'r bliss of touch - 

She couldn’t let him dare so much!

.

First languished, paused a moment.. then 

She stroked his temple with her hand

Blushing, bewildered, melting down,

Sweet exultation.

                                "Dearest... Friend...

Sure your embrace. And boon your lips.

Gentle your gaze.

I have been longing for this kiss.

Sweetness your fingers radiate,

I dared not ever contemplate

Such a celestial bliss “
