Treasure Island

David Whalen

(5/18/38 / Covington Kentucky)

Smitten in Starlight


Brightly lit by starlight streaming,
Through chestnut tresses, flowing, gleaming
Smiles wrought forth
from stranger’s faces beaming
Beaming out into the night

Smiles of wonder, from near and yonder
Teased from faces once tense and tight
Ope’ now wide and In awe ponder
Ponder the beauty bestowed…
Bestowed by her wondrous sight

Features carved as from precious Jade
Sensuous symmetry lightly laid
By artisan’s hand so light…
Profile proud, yet shyly shown
To be merely made of skin and bone
Ah…this creature whom I’m with tonight!

Does it show in my face aglow
The rush of delight. The pride?
My strutting stride, with her by my side
As we stroll out
and into the night.

Arm in arm, hand in glove
Awash in starlight and love
Am I smitten? Have I been bitten,
By a love bug
This very night?
