The Swing

 

Happy accidents often display true intentions--

a glimpse beneath the skirt in the wake of cherubim.

Former virtue may become a thought soon left unsung,

a girl regarded as a woman rather than young.

A curtsey to her lover once thrust up by the sway

and leave her gentleman for cupid without dismay.

Write on TLhopkinson........write on.

Those individuals who deem themselves perfect barely scratch an elbow in their fall from grace. Wm Steele
