Pink

"They are fools who kiss and tell"-
Wisely has the poet sung.
Man may hold all sorts of posts
If he'll only hold his tongue.  
                 Rudyard Kipling- Pink Dominoes
____________________

We went to a grand masquerade,
  My love and I, this night;
I wore a sweet pink gown and mask,
  Oh, we were quite a sight.

I was twirled and swirled and then dipped,
  In my ear he whispered;
At the stroke of midnight we meet,
  Sweet kissing-  I pictured.

Our meeting place, the rose arbor,
  I spoke with the handsome;
Many a slow dance with masked men,
  Love vanished-  a phantom.

Midnight and out to the garden,
  Oh, so dark with shadow;
I saw him under the arbor,
  And there was no hello.

I kissed his lips with deep desire,
  And he enclosed me tight;
But, I sensed something different--
  Why was the moon not bright?

I pulled away with a loud gasp,
  This man was not my love;
I bumped into my love walking,
  I flew like a pink dove.

Inside, I collected myself,
  Two men- and one did wink;
Oh my dear, have you met my twin--
  I blushed a deep pink, pink.

    Really a funny takeout. You have been writing a lot, and I have not. However, I wanted to let you know I am sending you beams of good just now. You have a gift and resonate it to me and others. For that--a heartfelt thanks.
