Far Across the Deep Blue Waters

I was only checking her out
as she sat on the good side of the café,
for some reason the food looked better over there,
even the women seemed to be more fair;
on that particular moment she started staring at me
not that it made me feel uncomfortable,
it was as pleasing as could be,
and now she was beckoning with her finger
and playing with her short skirt with others,
I was definitely paying attention
and attention was doing its work;
this café was only a short ways away
from the dance club named Atlantic
and right about now, I was feeling kind of romantic
so I jumped up sensing an opportunity
and slid into her booth hoping she was digging me,
I helped her finish off her ham sandwich
then we headed for Club Atlantic,
she said she danced there every Saturday night
and we shared many a dance that night;
I walked her home later that night,
she lived far away on a dark country road,
I kissed her once, I kissed her twice,
until her mother opened the front door
and said "one last kiss" to say goodnite.

Fraulein

Far across the deep blue waters
lived an old German's daughter
on the banks of the old river Rhein,
where I found her and left her
but I can't forget her,
she was my pretty Fraulein

I like the romance in your poem JM. The clarity of your reminisce means one of two things to me. One, this occurred yesterday or two, it happened many years ago and she meant something more than the average 'fling' or 'one-nite stand'.

Pass the Glade if you're going to do that here...
