Take a Word - Ancestor

A sort of change of pace.   I wonder what accounts for the weary sadness of her face.  How I wish
I could know her story!!  My niece challenged me to write a story for her in poem.  I did so, and I'll be posting it soon on my poetry blog.  If you're interested, watch for it.  I gave her a name for purposes of the poem, so the title is "Lydia".

Take a Word - Red

The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There's nobody here, it's just you and me,
It's where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I'll never forget the way you look tonight
(Old song lyric)
