Late to the Ball

Late to the Ball

for the ever so demure
Tess Kincaid
a celebration of her birth

an eerie fog has blanketed
the south coast
causing the delay
of my jet on the runway

my ball gown
of pink & black
is carefully packed
ready to dance

but alas I
arrive so late
just in time
to dance with
the ghost of my date.

A lovely gown and too late for a
dance but, your slipper is left
perhaps, your prince will find

Oh now I remember you. A couple of my dates couldn't keep their eyes off of you. I must know where you got your stunning gown.
