Echoes of the Footsteps to Ready to Monday 
A lovers dance so special a world took notice 
A new dance so special will the world take notice 

Echoes of the Footsteps (Martin verse) 

The echoes of the footsteps in the street
Another chance another kiss to meet
A couple with a life ahead to greet
And every Joyous song made up their beat
For them the Joy of life became a dance
In every turn the promise of romance
Within their arms was safety from all chance
The dreams of love were captured in their trance
And when they passed the word was in the street
Somehow the air is flavored with romance
Perhaps it’s time to give a kiss a chance
Perhaps it’s time for hearts to learn their beat
And more yet more would join them in their dance
Unsure of all the Joys they there would meet
For some what once was lost again to greet
These dreams became the heart of their own trance
Then they noticed all their music lost a beat
And what they all forgot they then would greet
The couple who they all had chanced to meet
Were echoes of the footsteps in the street 

A life becomes a dance becomes this Martin verse. A four line rhyme is introduced. A second four line rhyme is added. The two rhymes are mixed together. The first rhyme emerges in reverse order. A Martin verse is formed. 

This poem is about Arlene and I and one special time when we were on top of the world. As the poem suggests, dancing was an important part in our lives. Life was a dance. Our years of parenting were behind us. Those days of the discos were far off. Our children helped take our minds away from the fact that we were aging. But there we were, a couple who suddenly were in their 40's. Life smiled on Arlene and I. Before reality could set in, we were put in charge of entertainment at the Lodge. We turned to what we knew best. Dance. Our first dance was very successful. This led to other well attended events. Behind them all were Arlene and Martin. In no time, we became so popular that we were invited to other dances, and our keys to success were adopted. Another effect was: Arlene and I were in our 20's again. Not only that, Arlene and I got many "thank you" regards from others who felt rejuvenated. It was a special time for a special couple, whose magic ignited others. As the poem suggests, the time came for Arlene and I to move on. Many things that we introduced still carry on, "...echoes of the footsteps...". 

Yes, Arlene and I were pretty great. Let me share with you what we often times shared with our admirers. Have you ever seen a love movie? How many are there? Are they all the same? What special moments did you have? Wouldn't that make a great movie? Try it. I'm certain we all have a great movies. The fact is, there is greatness in all of us, it is simply a different movie. (Some of us are not into "love stories".) Yes, dances were dying. Arlene and I were the right people at the right time. But who is to say we all aren't? This life is made for us, We are all special. Put these two together and enjoy.

Dance fads come and go 

The most sensual dance of modern times is without a doubt the Tango. It originated in the 1890s in Argentina, but it quickly became very successful in Europe. One can hardly call Marlon Webb/s new moves sensual. In fact, what exactly are they? Is it a dance? Is it an exorcise? One thing is certain. It is catching on.

Let your life lightly dance 
on the edges of Time like dew 
on the tip of a leaf.

  1. I am glad you had those times - and have those time through memories.

    1. Those memories live on through the action of others.
