(for Temptress)

The madness of the Mississippi mist
settled like dew on her golden hair
she danced around the field that night
arms aloft, without a worldly care.

The night birds flying close to her
could hear her crooning an eerie hymn
she was a part of the darkling night
a midnight seraphim.

Her nightgown of pure white cotton
clung to her girlish frame
bare feet flew in a pagan dance
that was wild and without shame.

As untamed as any gypsy wench
she twirled in girlish delight
unseen, unheard by mortal man
a child of the night.

When she tired, she stopped a bit
to speak to the whispering wind
she became the mist, the night,
the darkness called Rosalind.

Your poem paints pictures in my mind. I feel I am dancing along.

He espied a whirling durbish
Beneath a Mississippi moon
Her frame was slightly girlish
But in his soul he felt heart's swoon
For in her whirling, twirling dance
Felt mist on whispering wind
To lose his mortal soul would chance
Wild pagan dance, with Rosalind.

Thank you all for your kind comments - and Tim for your responding poem... living as I do in the dry heat of the Arizona desert, the Mississippi mist appealed to me..I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Oh my! For shame! Apparently I never responded to this. I swore it was posted somewhere else though. Oh well.

PoetDevine.
I thought to bring this up again because it is an excellent poem. I wanted to thank you again for writing it.

Reading it even now, I believe it still captures the way I am.    It brought a smile to my face.

This is so beautiful, Sharon! The images you describe are dancing through my mind.

Love and hugs,
