A Gypsy Night With Josephine

 

i met a girl, whose name was josephine

her hair was blond and braided

her body brown and lean.

her feet were small and lovely

a dimple in her chin

her cheeks were smudged with chocolate

her shaggy wolf was tim.

we danced and sang

and kissed the rain

we howled with wolves

and rode a train.

we rode it down to the river green

where gypsies live and fishes swim.

a mellow flute, a drummer’s beat

a black-haired girl

and roasted meat

a wine so strong it makes you dance

the eyes so black they shake your stance

we danced and danced to the drummer’s beat

the river flew in the sensous heat

we hopped and hopped and stomped the ground

the charming gypsies’ spell was bound.

yet, in the morning we said good-bye

we cried, we hugged, we kissed a lot

a lovely night, oh, was it not?

we rode the train through valleys green

back to our home and the wolf called tim.

Josephine and her wolf called Tim.

    Oh, this is the cutest, the sweetest poem ever. And I mean it. I cannot stop reading it, it keeps pulling me back. You have such a sweet, sweet childlike soul. I’d love to come to you and give you a big, gypsy hug. Stay always as you are, my dear. You’re precious.

    čisto zares, prosim, napiši knjigo, ampak ne eno, dve, saj ne vem kaj je boljše, tvoja proza ali lirika, ampak saj ni važno, oboje je odlično. Priznam, da se me dotakne in ob prebiranju tvojih pisarij enostavno ne morem ostati ravnodušen. Čudovito izpovedno, prefinjeno zapisano!. Je pa res, da bom za tvoje angleške zapise kmalu potreboval kakšnega dobrega prevajalca

    Sploh ne vem več kolikokrat sem jo že prebrala. Tako luštno napisano, pa spet tako živo, da kar slišiš drdranje vlaka, pa otožni glas flavte in bobne…..Res si mojstrica pisanja. Bravo.

    Čarobno. Slikovito. Kot da je res. Želim ti obilico pozitivnih čustev in najlepših izpovedi! Tvojih! Ostani svoja!
