Poem 52: The Party

The Party

Wishing to dare, 
to divine one day 
the abyss of leisure, 
the secrets of their 
nature, I only saw  
their importance, 
the party, with their 
wandering pleasures.

Solemn hands 
made gestures of 
mystery the theme 
magnified, mild. 

They bestowed smiles 
on affairs, flirted with 
     --and sang to--
languidly gallant actors 
closely connected 
with the clique.

Perceptible, spirits 
appeared to give 
vivacity, to influence 
souls particularly summoned,
unlikely to return.

(Having nothing to do with this poem... Just a memory of a lovely day I want, always, to remember that way.)
