Fine Southern Women

The air is fragrant
of jasmine flowers
while sitting here
for tea

The grass beneath
my feet
cools, as the
sun retreats...

Cucumber sandwiches
so petite
fine southern women
fanning from the heat
ever so shy
the eyes that peek

Waiting for their callers
gentlemen in sync
wrap around porches
is the place
ladies meet

Courting is done
from the time
of sixteen
fancy apparel
long dresses with corsets underneath

Fine southern women
clearly speak
with dignity and zest
insulting you down while smiling...

Fine southern women
they can't be beat
ladies of an era
understated to be the least.
