UNMASKED


As stars undress, loosen the stays of night,
revelers surrender to fife and lute 
and revealing much, shining eyes invite
an ardent dance, a clandestine pursuit. 

Revelers surrender to fife and lute, 
two succumb to chords, wordlessly request
an ardent dance, a clandestine pursuit
where coupled notes may tumble and crest. 

Two succumb to chords, wordlessly request
a rendezvous, a most salacious raid
where coupled notes may tumble and crest
far from the constraints of the masquerade.

A rendezvous, a most salacious raid
there, sighs consent to what each kiss asks
far from the constraints of the masquerade 
innocence bares itself, at last, unmasked.

There, sighs consent to what each kiss asks
and revealing much, shining eyes invite...
innocence bares itself, at last, unmasked
as stars undress, loosen the stays of night.
