The Beauty Hour - Poem by GJG Elton

Between the dark and the daylight,
As the stars begin to shower.
I close my eyes and dream.
Of the time with my little flower.

Now, in the future I see
A vision with radiant hair,
Anita Maria Lopez
A beauty.., oh so fair.

I feel my heart, it's pounding
I hear it, beat, beat, beat.
The sound of my soul she opened,
With a voice so soft and sweet.

A sudden rush from the past,
At her feet though I did fall,
My heart was left unguarded,
She entered my castle wall.

She climbs onto my turret,
I didn't have a prayer
If I try to escape, she surrounds me,
She seems to be everywhere.

She devours me with kisses,
Her arms about me entwine,
Her wily charms engulf me.
My future with her consigned.

Do you think, O fair skinned maiden,
Because you scaled my wall
Such an old mustache as I am
Is not a match for y'all?

A beauty from my distant past,
In my heart did she enthrall.
I whisper, then hear her silence,
As I begin to repair that wall.

I have you fast in my fortress,
And I will not let you depart,
But put you into the dungeon
In the round-tower of my heart.

And there will I keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulder in dust away!
