Walkin' Away - Poem by MacGregor Tagliaferro

I found that place inspired,
And her I never more desired.
No other one, my heart so sped,
For a sight could turn my head

I heard the music when she talked
And I found that as she walked
I could do not but stare
And wonder at her so rare

Dull and insensible, could see
A woman of such beauty
Move as she does, and makes me change
None so great, makes me feel strange;

And all my thoughts, and if I may,
All my desires came this way;
Flesh and bone and wouldn't it be fun,
Wonderin' how it could be done,

In spite of her clothes, to espy
The parts denied unto the eye
I was undoin' all she wore,
And as she turned once more,

I could see her clearly between,
More naked or more plainly seen,
She was walkin' away, she left that place
Leavin' great anguish on my face.

Was this all but a tremulous dream
A random ripple in the reality stream.
If I cannot see again that smile,
And upon that discovery awhile,

See the rest of her, all the more dear,
If fancy sadly stops so near,
No time or age could pen
So lost a thing as I have been
