Royal(ty) Rendezvous

House At Dusk, 1935, Edward Hopper















Ramble down the accordian path
past the window where I sit
past the lamppost
past the House of Hopper.
Perambulate into the woods, wait
past dusk, my love. I'll meet you there.
A plethora of pleasure will come.

Like this. It's spare and lean. Hopper would have liked it too.

very good, loved the past/future contrast with 'past' throughout ending with what will come.

Any poem that has the word perambulate and it doesn't get in the way ahas to be an Awesome poem!!!!! Perfectly done. Had the royal naughtiness sewn right in.

I've never perambulated into the woods, but you have made me eager to try...

I like the "accordion path". I need to find me a "plethora of pleasure". Uh-huh.

love the list of things the lover is to pass: lampposts, hopper house, dusk...
the things we must walk through to reach the beloved.
