“Meet Me in Autumn”
You’re not fooling anyone with that stern posture
You may want to re-think the don’t-bother-me demeanor,
There’s at least one woman susceptible to autumn
I was wondering, by chance, have you seen her?
If so, would you pass along this gentle word . . .
A writer in Southern California is willing to interview,
His curriculum vitae at first glance is rather thin
Ah, but behold the wondrous things he can do:
Pull out your cushioned chair from the reserved table;
Lay the cloud-white cloth across your lap;
Whisper, ‘Welcome to my autumn’ in your ear;
And unveil the palmbox dressed in burgundy wrap
Just a little something to set a seasonal tone
As intended, my, how they sparkle against your wrist,
‘Waiter, please, whatever the lady prefers, I’ll have’
If I’m not mistaken, your eyes have gathered a mist
Tell me, what are your entertainment interests?
Perhaps a theatre performance or live poetics show,
You like the design-your-own-kitchen model tours
To next month’s Los Angeles Auto Show we’ll go
Have you decided on plans for Halloween?
Ghouls and goblins aside, we’ll choose costumes:
Your Bonnie, my Clyde; My Count, your Mistress
The tingle between Lois Lane and Clark Kent resumes
Don’t have me turn Superman up in here, woman
I’ll wrap you in my cape and fly you away,
To that enchanted place of happily ever after
Where each day is an autumn Pamper-Her-Friday
Far-fetched, think you? A realm of unreality . . .
Such thoughts are simply beyond the pale?
Well, autumn, for me, holds the sweetest imaginings
So, woman, open your heart to this soft sell:
Come, meet me at the corner of Stratford and Maine
Java at Roy’s serves homemade shepherd’s pie,
The quaint five-table roastery offers a perfect setting
The moment you arrive, you’ll understand why
It’s Pamper-Her-Friday in autumn’s midst
Come dine with me, share a little wine with me,
To launch your weekend on a high, I insist
What do you say we meet around 3?
(set your clock back an hour, Love)
What is it about autumn? Romance . . . . -Rg2
