Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



Before was sober expectation -
The scuttlebutt
The learned dissertation

How the boxes, parquet did settle, did flow 
Plush with plutocracy
While those on high held thoughtful gaze below

Bother not with concert raving,
Stage attire and shading
As per always was the performance amazing!

Let’s mil about after the show –
The careful exit,
The lingering afterglow

How the music like whispering mist
Has tinted sensitive faces
Has harmoniously kissed

And bathed dreary sense with light
How, long after cocktails, snacks and chat
One, yet charmed, fondly hugs the spouse goodnight
