Ruddy cheeks, red on both sides
Alluring, beautiful with nothing besides
Matching – truly matching – her gown
Nucleus from where her smiles are grown
Why stare at her in a rush?
At her rose-pink cheeks – plum and plush?
All stands still, sounds come to a hush
At the sight of her cute, cute blush.
Penned this at a dinner sometime in mid 2011. Berny Akaeze, how could I have ignored a touch of your blush?
