You walked across the floor
bowed slightly before me
“Shall we dance?”, you said.
because I didn’t know how.
You offered your hand,
your face, filled with optimism
your eyes made waltz irresistible.
How could I refuse.
note: Last Sunday, last day of Festival del Sole, Mrs. Abstract and I attended a concert featuring Midori, Ildar Abdrazakov, and the Russian National Orchestra. The Orchestra played several pieces including Masquerade Suite by Aram Khachaturian.
