    she danced around my request to get acquainted
    she smiled a smile of innocence
    like she was new to this world
    and she was
    at least she was new to my world
    but i had to have her in it
    so i kept inquiring
    and she kept smiling

    it was something in her glow

    i met her again
    down by the southern shores
    she was waiting for her life to begin
    she spoke about the strange men
    who made promises in exclamation
    without mentioning her smile
    but not i
    i fell into her smile
    because i knew it was the beginning
    of things to come
    and i wanted to see what she will bring to me
    so i kept inquiring
    and she kept smiling

    it was something in her glow

    under southern trees
    near the road to big cities
    we met again
    this time with a circular link in my hand
    i inquired of our lives getting acquainted in years to come
    i spoke to her of wanting to tie knots
    just to keep her from dancing away from me
    so as i continued to speak of day and night dreams
    she would continue to smile a smile of innocence
    pretending that she had not planned for her life
    to intertwine with mine
    and with tear filled eyes
    i smiled back at her

    it was something in her glow

    i no longer inquire of getting acquainted
    i now sing songs
    songs of beginning life with her in my world
    i sing of loving the life that she brings to me
    i sing of the day and night dreams
    that have unfolded inside our circular link
    i sing of living in her smile
    as we together dance in her glow

    Thank you for the southern hospitality

    Miss. Destee, Thank you for the warm welcome. I will be here for a while.

    Miss. Alyce, Thank you for your time and your reply. I remember your statement last night in chat. I hope I met the mark. :))

    Bishop, It is my plan to know her well before I take flight! Thank you for the read.

    and

    Miss. Nita, If my inquiring of a southern belle don't bring love, then I surely will give you a call.

    This sure made me glow to see a brother that doesn't mind to let his flow go.
    Keep it up Henry for the southern belles are waiting.
