A Waltz

Our foxtrot wasn't good, but then again,
it wasn't bad before, alas, my heel
impaired that poor man's shin and yet I feel
that you were leading rather well ‘till then.

The Samba tempo's captivating thrall
seduced us to abandon Earthly care.
Our spirals had finesse and to be fair,
we only once collided with the wall.

And when I fell, I know you did not gloat,
that was instead, a sympathetic grin.
I swear, it was an accidental spin
which sadly brought my elbow to your throat.

And last, I lightly spun in blissful trance,
a waltz, goodnight and thank you for the dance.

    Ah the good all times when people used to really fall and sometimes dance.
    The good old times when life was life, not just an unmelodious trance.
    Delightfully amusing, gay and charming poem, Thank you

    A truly enjoyed write. I felt pretty dizzy as I was reading it! How about a two step
    next time for me. It was a lot of fun just reading it. Good penning!

    Sounds like a bruising dance on the floor that was saved with the waltz...being a ballroom dancer I found it so funny and enjoyable...regards

    Happily enjoyable. Try my version when you have a spare couple of minutes. Natural Tempo

    What a humorous scene! I visualize the pair spiralling in ecstatic thrill, forgetting earthly care and even colliding against the wall! ! A beautiful visual! !
