A beautiful scene

Oriental head dresses glisten in mid-morning sunlight
small waists fitted into tight girdles and large crinolines 
move gracefully over chipped cobblestone

Men tip their top hats and wink at beautiful young women twirling decorative 
umbrellas over well kept hair. 

Church bells echo through streets of young children playing tag.
Men escort their wives over rain puddles collected at the gutters.

Old women browse shop windows smiling only when a bakery beckons them with 
sweet smells of sugar and flour. 

The town sways with love and greatness.
A small stage looms in the town center calling those seeking entertainment.
'Only two cents' for a ballet preview or 'three cents' for an opera opening.

At night couples, young and old descend decadent staircases at the ball, flaunting 
beautiful dresses.
Singles curtsy before slipping into a slow waltz.
Weary mothers keep a close eye near by. 

A beautifully painted sky provides moon light for long walks and sweet talks while 
sleeping children lie safely under tucked in blankets at home.

Oh, such a beautiful scene.
