Unforgettable Show

Foggy night in London

It was a dank and foggy eve,

A perfect night for London theatre.

The stairway couldn’t have been narrower

And farther up than you’d believe.

Voilá, a view seat – “Hey, qui vive!”

Plopped in front of me a beehive coiffure!

It was a dank and foggy eve.

A perfect night for London theatre.

Phew, a ton of spray in her upheave!

A smoke to cope, I lit the tobacco cylinder.

My lighter – a torch, and I the unwitting emblazoner.

Her hair ablaze, I quickly took my leave.

It was a dank and foggy eve.

 

A friend told of his Navy days during a break in England in the 1960s. He remembered this night fifty years later. I hope someone extinguished her fiery hair before any major damage took place.

I wrote the poem as a rondel, a thirteen lined French style poem begun in the fourteenth century writing in northern France. It follows a strict rhyming patterns with only two sounds.

Thought you all might like a break from my blogging blog posts for a minute.
