play me

play me


play for me the notes of spring

arpeggio me light breezes in the grass

flutter sweet triplets

through lime-curled leaves

leave me cool and floating

under lilac shade


no minor chords, no majors

let’s keep it light today, my love,

lift my spirit like the breeze

that flirts with my silk skirt

layers dancing, rising

to expose a slackened thigh

still eager for a dance
