I do poorly relating from the heart. Until the rare motivation inspires me to scribe with passion. This is for her.

 

a partner for the dance
 
fidelity appraises my intentions
her measure attentive through
glistening eyes lavishing pride
upon my unworthy countenance
 
her crown atop my pate a gratuity
her disposition anoints rascally types
lest my merited shackles be in full view
tolerance persuades a saint’s etiquette
 
awash in love and imbued with sanctity
she leads me gentle into righteousness
guardian of my tarnished human soul
a fool rash with pride and arrogance
 
‘til she held my hand these drunken feet
knew not the harmony of tolerant dance
peg legs now glide in the flourish of tests
she leads I follow performing above my best

I have seldom read a more touching, eloquent or visual depiction of the esprit of love than this uplifting dance, Jon. The decorated language is so light and musical it truly plays a waltz on the heartstrings! There is an awe and a wonder here, too, that also makes it feel like hallowed ground. Just beautiful! :)) xx

The combo of humour and the candid expression of passion is simply marvelous. And, like most blokes, I totally relate to this.

Yes indeed, masterfully you pull the strings together of that special spirit that makes the puppet dance, I can fully relate to this, for I know that truth. Bless ya Jon!
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 11/24/2011
I cannot relate, my friend, for I always led the dance. On the other hand, for those shy on the dance floor it takes a great woman to lead them out. As my ability to walk waned, I found a strong woman who helped me survive a continual fall as we pirouetted across the floor, amazing the audience with the power of the dance that was all hers, to my relief.

Beautifully written with a remarkably unique set of phrases.

"..tolerance persuades a saint's etiquette"
now there's a thought and line to die for..
and that final line "...performing above my best'
is, too, masterly. Here, Jon, My Friend,
you perform magnificently, this is a poem
to savour and save.
Yes!
