The Dance

Yesterday lingers in my memory today
Perched on a manicured hill after the last bell
All my friends surrounding me 
She strolls by, I catch blue eyes 
glancing quickly my way

A scented envelope...
I rent a white tuxedo for her Sorority Ball
She's dressed in full length blue silk 
Formally announced; I escort her 
through a flowered arch to that shining floor

The band plays a sweet, soulful slow-dance song
I nuzzle her neck, breathing in her perfume scent 
Shivering slightly, she snuggles ever closer 
humming the same melody softly in my ear...

Submitted for Brian Strand’s latest contest
