A to Z Challenge – The Letter D – April 5, 2016

by Georgia

Moulin Rouge Toulouse-Lautrec Paintings – 1890

Delightful Daphne,
Dowager dame
from Dorroughby downs –
Danced (dusting daisies) at dawn
In damask digs,
Dumbfounding Daft old Dan!
(Doubting his eyes
“Damn, I’m dreaming drivel!”
Daft Dan did declare.)
Duly assured,
The delighted demented debaucher
Dropped down on his knees
Declaring his demise
If she denied his devotion.
Diffident in her dishevelment
Daphne demurred daintily,
Declaring:
“Devotion does demand a
Desirous dedication,
Disregard for dithering declarations
and I do mean durable discretion.
Do declare; “I Do! My dotty devotee”
Then dignify your declaration
With delightful deportment:
Dancing through the daisies
Disrobed at dawn with me!”
