Title of Poem: Danse macabre by Ian Emberson
Category : Death Poems
Death came to me in a mini skirt
As skittish as a kitten ,
And said : ' I am come - for your final flirt ' ,
But added : ' You don't seem smitten '.
Says I : ' Well - not in my wildest whim
Did I picture you looking like this ,
I'd been told that you were a reaper grim
And behold - a saucy miss '.
' Ah - many a one is like yourself
Surprised by my winning smile ,
I have jokes and jests like a playful elf
And I know the way to beguile '.
' But - please just pass me by with a nod
I've poems and plays unwritten ,
There are footpaths I have never trod
As you say - I'm not much smitten '.
' Oh hush my darling - and don't repine ',
And she gave a gracious prance ,
Then she twined her fingers into mine
And whispered : ' Shall we dance ? '
