Courage of a Kind

I keep dreaming of courage
Just one day, out of the blue
Take a girl by the hand
Dance her about the floor
Slow, stately whirling
A little Gene Kelly, maybe Fred Astaire
Chaste and elegant
There would be plenty of room
For the Holy Spirit.

Just something sudden and free
A bit of romance,
Her hand in mine
One two three…one two three
Spontaneous anachronism
Blue jeans t-shirt summer dress
Waltzing along to
“Lady, Your Roof Brings Me Down”
Elegant, measured, surreal
Just one moment to forget
My cowardice,
For a turn or two.
