Samba Lady..........Almost My Sonnet


Samba Lady - almost my sonnet -

Invite me samba lady; don’t hold back your maybe
I am eager to submit; to dance a fit, showcase my wit
Sounds of the drum roll; hearts swoon, minds lose control
Crashing the high cliffs; No doubts buts or ifs!
Footprints parade together, pride forever; lighthearted endeavor
But…there is always a “but”; the spoiler, a feeling in my gut
Tiny foams of sorrow tears; rejection founded my fears
Men attain ecstasy from your chemistry; fueling my jealousy
Suitor after suitor, metamorphosing into the cunning looter
Try to steal your heart; spellbound by your dancing art
A glance into the frosted front and back seat mirror; I am lost with terror
How often do you purge your cage? you rule and command the stage!

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
