Answer To Valsa George's Quest for An Anonymous Lover

As I stole into your garden
The conifers thick upon the margin;
Sharp with needles that pinched my skin
That didn't want to let me in;

Couldn't you have left the gate unlatched?
Why did I have to be pricked and scratched
Was this some form of test or hurdle
To prove my worth to access your girdle?

I saw you standing at your window
Framed in a yellow after glow;
I saw you unwrap your sari dress;
I saw your bosom and was quite impressed;

I tried to climb your latticed deck
A swarml of bees settled on my neck;
I lost my footing as they stung
And slipped down several wooden rungs;

Then I was surrounded by a canine pack
Who bared their teeth ready to attack;
Fortunately your husband came along,
And extricated me from their milling throng

I am too old for these mad excursions
I should seek out more safe diversions;
Perhaps I could join you for tea and scones
I'd be glad to visit when your husband's home.

    To prove my worth to access your girdle? ..............i laughed aloud at this line, especially since i know Valsa....but not in THAT way. i shall try to remember to ask her if she has seen this!

    in online urban dictionary the first definition of afterglow (you wrote after glow) is:

    The feeling after an orgasm ...............i must have just paid her a visit! forgive me, valsa's husband; i'm just kidding! ;)

    if you use two? ? in the second stanza, why not three? ? ? ..........?

    overall i have to say i love this poem. i have sent it to MyPornList. i mean MyPoemList. thanks for sharing.

    p.s. there IS a key under the door mat. bri :)

    [love the rhyming, humor, and punctuation. oh yeah, the story also.] (Report) Reply
