PROM NIGHT

a poem by Nancy Ellen Crossland, USA - poetry writer, author, poet


She was a sweet confection of pink;
Blush of a rose
From the top of her coifed tresses
To the tip of her sandled toes

He,
So debonair in fitted suit
With touch of pink
In his boutonniere
Arm extended gallantly
For his lady fair

This is the night of nights
To be recalled decades from now
With band in tune
They twirled round the floor

The moon above reflected
Within their star struck eyes
Magic, excitement, memories made
Oh how the night did fly!

The expectation of youth
On the verge of life;
One foot on the playground swing
The other on the path
To do what is right

Fingertips touched
Cheek to cheek
Hold tenderly now
Not a time to be meek

For only once this moment
To see;
Senior prom
Night made for lasting
Memories
