EVENING FAIR

EVENING FAIR (sing to Scarborough Fair)

Crust of bread and strawberries red
Cheese and wine will go to your head
And when you dance    the room becomes magic
Step and whirl at Blithe County Fair

Warm the night with bright crescent Moon
Fiddles three    an old Spanish tune
Sweet Greta Lee has captured my fancy
Step and whirl at Blithe County Fair

Youth and Eros    moment of bliss
Rose glow her cheeks    I offer a kiss
Though so demure    she yields to temptation
Found my true love at Blithe County Fair

This was a delightful visit to the fair, Daver, and it flowed perfectly with the melody. I would expect nothing less from a concert violinist! Congratulations on your success in my contest. Love, Carolyn

Dear Daver, you made a mistake. You used an “l” instead of an “i”. The email is riisna@yahoo.ca Please try to send it again. I would love to hear from you in email because I have so little time for Poetry Soup. Love, Amy.

Daver, I think I like yours the best of all. It's short, it's romantic and I can actually sing to this one because I remember its tune!! Did you never see Apocolypto, directed by Mel Gisbon. It's about the end of the Mayans, and Jaguar Paw is the main character. YOu should rent it. It's awesome. Glad you enjoyed my Charlie fish limerick. Luv, andrea
