He Proposed

 

Last night

On a balcony with an almost full moon

Few people present some of them watched

After champagne somewhat more wine

An open view of the late summer night

 

Standing straight

Feet steady sturdy positioned and placed

On a balcony with a view a street full of trees

Some people present few of them watched

Having had wine champagne the almost full moon

 

Standing straight feet steady sturdy positioned and placed

People were present one of them spoke

 

Yeah he proposed

  1. smiles… very romantic… the wine…almost full moon…the view from the balcony… ha… i’m rather unromantic… if i were a man i possibly would propose in the supermarket between rows of dog food and shaving cream… on my knees of course…smiles…

  2. Everything perfect except … she declined. Great sense of setting in this poem. I also like the way the setting builds up to a moment, which when delivered ends up being almost an afterthought, definitely not the highlight.

  3. smiles…really a lovely capture of the moment…but unwelcome…ack that would make for a rather awkward situ…and i might be kinda glad there were not that many there…i was thinking romantic…now the end is very chilling…

  4. I thought the poem very romantic until ‘Standing straight, Feet steady sturdy positioned and placed’ ..I guess it takes a lot of courage to ask, lol ..I enjoyed the read, thank you 🙂

  5. I thought this lovely and romantic until ‘Standing straight Feet steady sturdy positioned and placed’…takes a lot of courage to propose lol ..I enjoyed the read, thank you 🙂
