Flamenco Dancer


By Josie Whitehead

Sweet Dancer

She’s so pretty when she dances

     As she twirls around in style -

With her tawny eyes that twinkle

     And the dimples in her smile.


She sways gently to the music,

     With hair that shines like silk.

Her cheeks exude a healthy glow;

     Her skin’s as white as milk.


She passes by oblivious

     That I am standing there -

With carefree, rapturous motion

     This sensuous lady fair.


Oh you most beguiling temptress!

     If you but only knew,

I’ll love you till my dying day –

     Sweet dancer, I love you.
