An Orange Pencil Skirt

An Orange Pencil Skirt

Across the street a-walking, striding
A lovely young thing in an orange
Pencil skirt wrapped around two 
Comely legs sporting high-heeled
Black shoes.

Don’t see a sight like that all
That often, which is good,
Lest one be always distracted.
It was enough to trigger 
These words.

40 years from now she may well
Remember that pencil skirt and 
Those sharp black shoes, and wonder
Just when it was that time walked 
away from her and left 
Her for another pair of legs.
