Goodbye Leonie

Lotus Moon

Come dance by the Gypsy fire,” she said;
where the Sage speaks of forgotten words,
and candles play with mimsy shadows,
‘neath the Lotus Moon and your tears.

I finger ruby shoes round my throat –
a talisman of time’s tapestry;
extending my arms in expectation,
and clutch at her mem’ried melody.

Guitars purr in gossamer moonlight,
and my feet prance in driven dream –
and she glides with me in the glomming
while soft petals swirl in the night.

Oh my faucon. Leonie would have so loved this. I can see her eyes twinkling with merriment and pleasure. Of course, she would be a little embarrassed about all the attention but I would get my best le Enchanteur look and tell her to ENJOY.
