Silver Curves!



Spied in a shop window in a little country town,
Where Fashion wasn't high on the agenda.
I saw this silver corset, all set-around with flowers;
It had an air of quite voluptuous splendour.
It seemed from another era, Victorian maybe,
When waists were small and bosoms quite pronounced.
When curves were in, and skinny girls were something else again
And anything less than an 'armful' was denounced.
The young girls passed the window, in their T-shirts and their jeans
And scarcely gave the scene a second glance,
But I was back in bye-gone days , when a lady filled her card
With suitors who were asking for a dance.
Another ballroom here:

See tomorrow's blog for my view of Walt Disney.

Isn't it amazing what you see when you're looking for photo ops all the time. This is a great example.
