The Poetess Entreats Her Beau

by Robert Laughlin

Please help me to commemorate
The thrill I had on our last date.

To shape it into perfect rhyme,
I need a minute of your time.

We had our dinner with champagne,
Then parked your car in Lovers’ Lane.

That night I wore my sheerest dress
And fragrance that imparted Yes.

You reached out with your gentle hand
As to some unheard saraband.

So…what rhymes with ‘octopus’?
