A few lines written on Moulin Rouge and the turn of the century*
At the turn of the century
You will perhaps me beckon
To go by your side, as your love, forgotten,
Then we will go together to do a dance,
Perhaps will we go, to Moulin Rouge, simply by chance,
You would then ask me, what propelled that excitement
In me to find you always my deepest sentiment,
I would just flash a Smile,
Asking you to follow me,
To the last post of the mile,
There, Mon amour, we will see
How Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse Lautrec,
Had created the work of a century,
People how there gathered and danced,
How in painted forms Henri made a expanse,
Of art and dance forms getting enriched
Each just helping out , sworn by LOVE, each,
There how people did that famous 'can-can' dance,
How there we would meet again,simply by chance!
Would you , then also look at me
With that same look, filled with satiety?
I wonder how would really that rendezvous be
You and me, meeting at the turn of the century.
