The feathered fan

A beautiful fan of many a hue,
Feathers adorn it when opened, so
gently cooling the air with a graceful swoop,
When your subtle wrist moves to and fro.

Was Mamgu’s fan when she was young,
When to a ball she did go.
Hiding her face in a coy pose,
Yet eyeing you slyly, thinking, you didn’t know.

Gracefully dancing eyes lowered to the ground,
Fan to her face to hide the smile,
When dancing a cotillion with partners of four
Hands just touching heart racing a mile.

The fan held the key to their romance
Sliding it to her cheek she was saying, “I want you”
Holding it opened, covering the mouth.  
“I belong to no-one, am here for you”..

    Seren, for some reason, as I read this, I was imagining it was written by an Asian or something. I don't know why. the mother of the poem just seemed so delicate and womanly like I envision a woman from the east to be. oh, and the name Mamgu. You sure fooled me with that one. Was this a real story of your mom?? The more I think of this one, the more I like it, the ending was so delightful. Congrats for your win in my contest.

    Mamgu is grandmother in welsh , purely fictional Andrea, Haha so you think I am not delicate and womanly, hmmmm. Have a vivid imagination at times Andrea, plus good old google giving me hints to the way a fan talks. Glad you approved.....Seren
