Treasure Island

T Ebi Ken Jemine

She Stopped Dancing

She started dancing
The dance floor greeted her
Treated her with an embodying gaze

All the dance lords stepped backward
Overwhelmed with her dance steps
All hesitating to step forward

He stepped up and tangoed she-ward
He proudly, boldly spread his hand and palm
Carefully she closed up and held it

One, two, three, they moved in unison
She blushed, but very much well aware
Guiding, not ready to trade trusting

He flipped her up leftward
Landed her in his bosom comfortably
He sold a smile. She paid faithfully

Once and all, she lost her guide
She traded all her trust in one trip
The smiles stayed in reply, tango lingered

One, two, three; another flip rightward
He blinked, she cuddled the dance floor
She stopped dancing once and forever

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
