Waltz lessons

It doesn’t matter, mate, just count
and swirl your gal around the hall
It doesn’t matter if you’re dizzy
just count to three without a fall,

Be gentle. careful with the booze
in waltz you cannot lose a game
your girl will follow, and then after
when music cease you can claim

your lady’s party in your bunk.
So waltz along my friend, seduce
the girl and if tomorrow you are tired,
I’ll waltz the girl, she can’t refuse.

I host MTB in waltz tempo tonight at dVerse, the prompt went up early so just come along and link up.

  1. A romantic and tantalizing dance, Bjorn! I like how you’ve used enjambment to dance between the stanzas, keeps the poem flowing nicely.

  2. Sounds like there’s some magic in those waltzing steps that ladies can’t refuse. Fun spin around the floor, Bjorn 🙂

  3. What fun is this waltz dance. The last line made me laugh. Thanks for the challenge Bjorn. Have a good weekend.

  4. I wondered why so many poets had already posted. This a fine illustration for your prompt, staying light-hearted much like the example you used.

  5. Love this Bjorn, extremely romantic. A wonderful hybrid of a waltz. And the illustration is delectable! I attempted to stay strictly to the Da-dum-dum, Da-dum-dum beat pattern of a traditional waltz — to see if I could maintain it throughout. Not easy. Fun and challenging prompt today.

  6. These are cheeky waltz lessons, Björn! But then, back in the day, that’s what young men did, danced a girl into bed.

  7. ‘Just count and swirl’ – ah, you make it sound so simple 🙂
    (I’m referring to the dancing you understand!)
