Tango - From Pages of Love

I’d like to approach you someday
On a day of Easter or Sunday
To whisper a trifle or two
With unusual audacity

Then after a month or so
To snatch your ultimate pledge
As we parade -- a pair in public --
And let the rumors fly home…

Your life -- a lone lane at dusk
Just right for an easy pick-up
With piercing lustful whistles
At your lithe gait erect with pride

And your solid unyielding stance
Of unreachable dazzling beauty…
A pristine goldmine of life --
A maiden approaching forty…
