She is a gypsy woman preying
from piercing eyes of green
tell your fortune take your
money engaging in devious
mind trickery

A traveling troupe campfire
inviting flames licking for the
sky as skirts flare delirious
tambourine dancing high into
the night contagious senses

Gold hoop earrings against a
milk chocolate skin make love
on her bear skin rug, if you
dare...gypsy gone by morn
with your wallet bare

"Fool me once, shame on you"
looking for love
"Fooled twice, shame on me"

(c) Steal Away
Vivian L Dawson

This poem revives the romantic, Hollywood version of gypsy life. It makes a pleasant change from the crude reality of the present day Roma. What was it about those raven haired temptresses with the hoop earrings? So we lost our wallet; so what! Your gypsy reminds me of someone I once knew.

I imagine that many women have preyed on many men, for centuries.

You paint such a vivid picture of the night and the scenes of a gypsy and her life, whether real or imagined it chills.

You have captured the myth and the romance of the Romani very well, even today they are the people of scorn by many people just because of their past and yes some of them(like others) live up to their press.

She'd have to be pretty good to take my wallet and empty it, as it seems nowadays my wallet stays pretty empty on its own...;-)e

Your poem brings out the romance of the gypsy and her fortune-telling ways. Like Jerry, the eyes have it. I was once on a winter train in Germany at night when four Gypsies entered our compartment. Two were men dressed in black and two were women dressed in black. One woman had a missing front tooth and was quite ugly. The other woman was strikingly beautiful with eyes that I kept trying to avert because I was afraid that they might rob my companion and I. I would have loved to talk to her, but was glad when they get off before we did.

Those are the scariest set of eyes I believe I have ever seen, Vivian. Still . . . If I met up with her, I would fore-go my dismay and wariness and hop on that bearskin rug. Uh huh. Yep. I would. Men. We think with other things beside our brains from time to time.
