I Can No Longer be a Duchess

Affluent and formal
pink lilies deck the tables;
we await the 
sweet, affected 
laughter of our  friends.
Bedecked in bouffant hair-do's
perfumes, ermines, jewels
brocades and buckled shoes,
we dazzle, yes! We dazzle
with our mirrors, and our decals,
our precious art, and plaster,
exotic candelabras, 

but  I can't wait to make my
exit to  wander in the gardens
and let the scented air restore
my soul 
To get completely
lost in moonlight and 
fragrance of the night  
never to return,
to that balcony, nor
endure, the boring empty twitter
that temporary glitter.

I can barely wait till daylight to
mount my noble horse
and gallop miles and miles
and miles  away.
To feel the solid earth resound
beneath his flying feet.
I  have crossed that fragile  threshold 
into madness.

I can no longer be a Duchess
