Romance and Tango

Updated on December 22, 2016
Gypsy Rose Lee profile image

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Romance and tango,

moonlight and roses,

quiet times and starlight,

that make the night sparkling and bright.

Let’s dance the night away,

as the music plays,

melodies of long-gone romances,

while to one another,

we hold on so tight..

Romance and tango,

all night long,

in passionate embrace -

as the music plays.

Romance and tango,

make sparks fly,

just you and I -

the night and the music,

the perfume of roses,

wafting in the air.

No matter what the season,

no matter what the reason,

whether it be the spring,

when roses bloom

or in the summertime,

dancing beneath the summer moon.

When autumn leaves,

go swirling by,

we hold hands,

running against the wind.

In the wintertime,

side by side,

we sit cuddling real close.

Passions often flare,

then open up your heart if you dare,

let a true love inside,

kissing and dreaming side by side.

Romance and tango,

made just for you and me,

dancing and romancing,

as romantic tangos make us sway

and romantic melodies they play.

Romance and tango -

dreaming the night away.

      Hello Gypsy Rose Lee - this piece had such grace and balance. It is masterful in both message and tempo.

      You welcome Shauna. That is what gets me through this life going on with a rosy glow like always wearing rose colored glasses. Let us hope this will be a banner year for all of us.

      Thank you Genna. Yes, that is my favorite version of that song. Knowing Robin has passed on still puts a lump in my throat when I listen to it. Wishing you and yours a Happy New Year.

      I think it was Robert Frost who once said, "dancing is a vertical expression of a horizontal desire." Your poem is wonderfully romantic...just beautiful. I like Robin's rendition of that iconic song.

      Happy New Year! :-)

      Your genre of poetry is definitely all Romance, Gypsy. Your writing whisks us away and makes us want to be in love. Always a pleasure to read your poems. Merry Christmas!!

      Well, I'm not much of a dancer, so I'll sit this one out, but I'm a romantic to the core, and that means I loved this.

      Merry Christmas dear friend.
