May I Have The Pleasure For M Lady Ernestine - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

Come let us dance the night away.
Content to hold and to be held close,
what need have we for words to say?
What beating hearts articulate
conjoined in perfect harmony
and smiling eyes reiterate.
An all embracing empathy.
Two pairs of gaily dancing feet
are syncopated by the beat
into a union that’s complete.
Two hearts which beat in unison
which with the rhythm keep in time.
Their only wish the band plays on.
To hold and be held is sublime.

    What a sweet poem Ivor, and to be dedicated to me is an honour indeed. I love dancing, used to do it (ballroom and all that) , years ago before I got married. It stopped when I found that my husband had two left feet. Loved the rhythm too. Many, many thanks. Blessings.
    love and hugs Ernestine XXX
