Red Red Wine Romance ~ a Poem

Updated on August 13, 2013

Red Red Wine Romance

Silky legs smoothly glide in sight

Along the beams of moonlit night

Where the heels of ruby shoes

Tip-tap to and fro the cobbled stones

Reflecting stars into diamonds.

Head to toe, She, a red rose bud

All polished like the shade of blood

Her lips burn like the crimson flame

Of a tall and charming street lamp glow

Sparkled, jeweled in the virgin snow.

She turns to the corner, a celebrated place

Where she sits amongst white linens of pearly lace

With her angel-soft scarlet feathered dress

Her eyes smile, lips curl, her finger twirls a strand

At exact seven, he takes and kisses her hand.

Red red wine, the glory they shared

Eyes locked as silence brought them paired

The tea light danced gazing above head

Swaying in delight to the spice of the night

Two lovers ignite as warmth played in the light.

“Red red wine, do pour more red, please,”

Monsieur calls to keep him at ease;

"Through her lips, sexy as it drips

Warm my heart, let it run through my veins,

Let trickle down her neck the mark of stains."

A cherry-red rose he dipped into the wine

A petal he plucked for his “lady o’ mine”

Whispers of love only they can hear

She smelled fragrant and full of amour

Grateful to Cupid’s triumphant chore.

“Red red wine, why thy drink is so divine?

The taste, all cardinal desires combine!

That cherub brought us here tonight

Oh woman, tell and fall if you must

Beloved, it is not all ‘bout lust.”

      Thank you so much for all your admiration to this poem. Hope that the Love Day had made yours special, that someone cared to give you a hug, a kiss and the mere thought of greeting you with the words "I love you" straight from the heart...that is all that matters.
