Skimpy dress


Do you remember my love
Those days long past, hand in hand
We'd traverse dunes sand in our shoes
Both laughing across the strand
Treat to see the sea at last light

As with a sect of others
Worship the sun's final rays
After a day's torrid heat
Align now to western bays
Feel night's cool breeze channel in

Your skimpy dress billows out
I must confess that pleased me
Injecting mirth as we walk
Long street to your family
Check time and get our tales straight

  2. An evocative snapshot, Robin. I love the way 'night's cool breeze' from the second stanza sneaks into the third to cause the dress to billow out. Oh the joys of youth - I used to love wearing skimpy dresses!
