Put On Your Night Shoes


Put on your night shoes, my beautiful dear,
and put on your gossamer gown.
Adorn your neck with the iridescence
of opal, and let your hair down!

Your tresses cascading – a blonde waterfall -
let them flow! Then to emphasize
a chatoyant sheen, use the jet black
of liner on your jade green eyes!

On lips that are dulcet, use a soft pink
like cherry tree blossoms in spring.
Flourescence they’ll see with you on my arms,
for darling, you’ll be flowering!

Dinner;  then on the pool deck we’ll Samba,
and under a plethora of
stars we see dancing above our cruise ship,
we will outshine them all with our love!

You are not gay, you are writing as a man would if said man had your talent, that's all, and writing a joyously flowing, splendidly enthralling poem is what you did. Truly a fun read that sparkles. Congratulations on your deserved placement. Yay you!!! Love ... CayCay

Definitely sounds like words from the mind of a woman. Also, am wondering about women's impressions regarding abortion. I am a man and have absolutely no understanding of it so it should remain a woman's affair so there to those women everywhere.

thanks for your wish for me. It's my dream to get hubbie to go on a cruise one day.. We were hoping this year but many bad things have happened, are happening. It looks like the cruise is on hold.
