    Take my hand and come with me
    Step into my world for a spell
    I want to show you my treasures
    Those simple Southern pleasures
    Let me guide you down a street
    Where folks you don't know
    Will actually smile and bid you
    "Good Mornin'"
    Allow me to pluck you a honeysuckle branch
    And watch your eyes close
    As you inhale the delicate fragrance of it flowers
    May I snag a peach off its tree for you
    And kiss away the juice
    That runs down your chin
    As you sink your teeth into its fuzzy flesh
    Please
    Let me bring you a frosted glass of lemonade
    To refresh you
    On this sultry Southern summer afternoon
    And watch your revel in its sweet wetness
    Sit in the kitchen with me
    As I fry the chicken
    And stir the greens
    And peek in on the macaroni and cheese
    Whose aromas elicit your tummy's rumble
    I've got a pound cake
    Cooling on a Coke bottle
    Just for you
    Will you allow me to feed you a slice
    Piece by piece
    So that my fingertips
    Can caress your lips
    And may I lick away the crumbs that linger
    Pretty please
    I'd love to sit on the porch with you
    At twilight
    When the street lights come on
    And the children are scampering inside
    As night falls
    Fireflies come out of hiding
    Can I catch one in a jar for you
    A little momento of this
    Southern rendezvous
    It's now so quiet you can hear the breeze
    Rustling through the trees
    And the crickets singing their love song
    I want to share this space with you
    Take my hand and come with me
    Step into my room for a spell
    Let me guide your hands over my body
    Where my heartbeat quickens
    And my skin bids you "Hello"
    Allow me to sink into your embrace
    And watch your eyes close
    As you inhale my scent
    May I do these things
    My Northern Nubian
    Will you permit me to show you another
    Meaning of
    Southern pleasures

    good feeling on this one. I was expecting a little different flow but this was really good. Take care to be careful from the world of Christopher's Place

    Gibbs? Been there a few times myself. But Palmetto South was my hangout. And the "Patch". (I am a recovering Marching 100-aholic.) Boy it feels good to see a fellow Rattler in here!
