Love's Labour's Lost: A Poetic Moment

As night birds sing their evening
Songs, I remember turning to you
While saying those most outrageous
Of lines: "Did I not dance with you
At Brabant once?" And with those
Words well spoken, you let your
Mask slip away revealing for the first
Time, my Lady, your blue eyes and
Deceptive smile, and at that moment
I knew that we would meet again
And again on that splendid stage
And in sonnets most true.
