Dinner Party Distraction
by Adam Latham
I watched the most exquisite bloom,
An object for admiring eyes,
Glide gracefully into the room
And sail upon a sea of sighs.
Resplendent in a satin gown
That matched her long cascading hair;
Rich auburn curls that trickled down,
Soft flawless skin her dress laid bare.
Her beauty sparkled like a star
And stole the gaze and sideways glance
Of every man, both near and far,
Transfixed by her pure elegance.
A vision truly to behold
Of ravishing, seductive style,
If only she would be so bold
To look up and return a smile.
