Best Daver Austin Poems

+ Fav Poet



Maddening the music
In exotic minor key
Those ornate, blinding masks
That cherished memory

Scented the ambiance
Obscurely lit the hall
Rococo baroque and splendid
In period costume all

Which of them my goddess
My lady Persephony
All appear enchanting
Which enchantress she?

Will she our tryst remember
That October night’s repose
The special autumn’s moonlight
The wine, the red, red rose?

    This is lovely, Daver...can almost hear the music, the muffled whispers, and feel the mystery and intrigue. Not burlesque, but tender and romantic. Best wishes! Love, Mikki
