Shall We Dance?

Will you dance the tango with me

And make me forget all life’s woes,

Hold your cheek close to mine, rough to soft

While I clench in my teeth a red rose?


Will you waltz me around until dawn

In a ballroom where only we two belong

Skirting floor edge to edge in grand sweeps

While orchestra plays our love song?


Will you Charleston and laugh as we flap

Giddy moves, all dressed to the nines,

Flirt outrageously, pose to the world

While forgetting all sad other times?


Will you twist me and turn me around,

Shake hips with luscious desire,

Berate the baleful and bored

While hearts are consumed by our fire?


Will you strip the willow with me,

Hear the skirl as I spin in your arms,

Skip up each line, reuniting in time,

While you succumb to all of my charms?


Will you rock and roll if they play,

And twirl me in jauntiest jive,

Laughing loudly at moves that we make

While you reassure me I’m still alive?


Will you boogie to disco, though crass,

Strut your stuff to show your emotion,

Remembering how those years were filled,

While new times inspire true devotion?


Will you pogo and romp if I smile

And suggest that we always must dance,

Partaking of life with its music to rouse

While we serenade this, our last chance?


Will you hold me for slowest of tunes

As the night draws to close and we sway,

Will you promise to be the dance of my life

While the music ebbs, fades away?

      1. There’s been no arrangements made for dancing. As yet. We’re going out for my birthday. A treat from our eldest three who are taking us. Into the city no less. I’ll have culture shock! I usually avoid it like the plague. But I’m looking forward to this. And there will be glam. Rest assured. Got my wee black number all figured out. 🙂 x


    1. My daughters ( 16 and 12!) had to explain that one to me recently, gave me a demonstration, then we all had a go! No arses hanging out mind. All good clean fun! But what a laugh. I didn’t know that’s what it was called….whatever that is. 🙂
      I can’t do half the ones mentioned but I do love dancing. And I needed a gear change. 😉 x


      1. Well we entertained the rest of the gang but no pictures were taken….that I know of. Never can be sure what shows up on their FB pages mind you. I try to avoid them. It wouldn’t be for the first time.
        Rachel, the now 16 year old, was into ‘planking’ at one time and planked across the top of a sideboard in the living room while her dad was snoozing on the couch. Then posted that one. I was caught on another one recently by another of my daughters and found myself included in one of her statuses. I really would rather not know. The buggers are incorrigible. 🙂 x


    1. I don’t know them all either but I’m willing to give them a go. A bit of Irish goes down well too. 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it. Go on, have another dance. 🙂 x


  1. Oh this is such a delightful read…My dear soul sister, may I have this dance? Shall we glide across the dance floor of this cyber world and leave our foot prints of joy, hope and love? 🙂
