Poem - Sweet Danseuse

One of the things that I love about Swing dancing is the ability to focus on a single partner for a period of time. There are no distractions. There is only you, your partner, and the music facilitating the encounter. My poem “Sweet Danseuse” is about such an encounter.

Sweet Danseuse
Poem for Day 128 – 20150508


I'll be your lead, you my partner,
we'll follow the music's tune,
the familiar beat, flowing as one.
DJ, you're the man on the job,
you've picked the best from the batch,
the one we always want to hear.

Swing out, leave for a time,
find your personal dance delight,
just come back, find my deft hand.
We could dance this in our sleep,
the words as familiar as our moves,
soft to ear, sensual to the touch.

Cozy up to my side, don't be shy.
We'll sway to the beat, to and fro,
heaven on earth, you by my side.
We'll do some slow side by side,
move into a close embrace,
tucked in tight, with nowhere to go.

Time flies, emotions combine,
not enough time with one so pretty,
the most beautiful none will deny.
I'll be your lead, dance's guide,
for this musical interlude too brief,
my partner, my sweet danseuse.
