merriment at the ball

merriment at the ball

A Poem by light years in love

                       The occupants jostled around in the carriage
                       as it careened down the winding cobblestones 
                       sounds of light laughter carried them to the ball
                       soon they would be floating across smokeless 
                       stretches of overdone rooms and endless cliche
                       piano chords striking notes in the imagination
                          

                         Arriving, her and host strode into the thrive
                       nods of introductions and bows of curtsy   
                  graced their entrance to the grand ole hall
                  articulating discussions blended with the tunes
                  she noticed him when he entered into the room
                  his bright eyes and the curly brown lock on his head
                  accompanying his gentle yet assertive deposition
                  advancing towards him, she held up her hand
                  twas the custom invitation to a reciprocal dance

                   her petticoats sway at the


                                                     hands of this admirable pursuer

                               matching his move for move

                                                              circling the wonder of it

My goodness, I can't believe what I'm reading... Victorian times, at their best, worded by you...
I swooned away by the gift of your pen, and your rich imagination of mind traveling...
The dance, was as soft as your words do the Waltz... I'm in awe... x

Awe, this piece was just cute. I can see why you feel that way. I mean this piece shows that you wished you were born in this century. I like description in the piece. I could actually image it and the picture of course goes with it. Sometimes I wish I knew what it was like to be at a ball myself. This piece comes alive to me. Thanks for sharing. :D

feeling you exist in a world you dont belong to!
a recurrent feeling which im a constant victim!
your poem fits so so much the victorian period! the wine would flow...the couples would valse around...the ball...the courtesy of gentlmen...and so on and so forth!

i was transported in the world of cindrella! (o^.^o)
