Make Him Feel Joyous

Poem By Louise Tredoux

Went through Rudi’s pockets before
dumping all in the washing, came
across a small folded note on which
he scribbled the beginnings of a love
note to me – Dear Louise, I’ll be late
tonight, but I’ll take you out for a bite,
please prepare by wearing your black
dress in which you are such a pretty
sight, if you prefer, even white, we’ll
paint the town red, before going to
bed… - I laughed and cried – never
got the note, how sweet of him, I
shall compose a poem for him also,
something worthy of his sweet
consideration, his loyalty and love,
something to make him feel as happy
and joyous as he makes me
feel all the time…
