The Dance
by ©Richard J. Budig 1999

I bow to the ladies
And kiss their perfumed hands
Good evening
My dears
Good evening
I must leave you now
For the last song has played
Put away your masks
Put on your capes
Dying embers in your hearths
Bid you home and to bed
Farewell, farewell I say
I shall not see you again
For the dance has ended
The musicians have all gone away
And the maestro's baton
Has run out of time

Visually stunning, I loved the imagery. I must say you must be quite the gentlemen since you did not escort these lovely ladies home. *L*

First off I am LOL@Aurora
This was a neat piece, I loved the imagery!
Thanks for a little stop into a life most of us will never experience.
