Stepping Through Time


Mrs Simpson was at home
when Edward asked me for a dance.
He gravely took my hand in waltz.

Mrs Simpson, being home,
had no idea he was with me,
liking arm around my waist.

She would not have cared
for my deep thrill at Ed's cologne
or noticed nervous tic on neck.

So handsome was he in the dance
where music trembled one two three...
(Ed's hand groped me tenderly.)


Historical figure - The Duke of Windsor
