A Poem in Three by Peggy Schimmelman Make me your love song in three-quarter time conjure me, count me in one-two-three-one-two-three whisper me whistle me dance me romance me woo me infuse me with rhythm and rhyme. I’m a Viennese ballroom a Tennessee dive I’m denim and crinoline sawdust and silver seduce me unloose me unwrap me undo me inhale me consume me I’m whiskey I’m wine. I’ll Waltz Across Texas I’m Norwegian Wood I’m Strauss and Chopin Jolie Blon, Clementine so wrangle untangle me Mr. Bojangle me I’m Amazing Grace Sweet Betsy from Pike. I’m Scarborough Fair on a Moon River night so Piano Man stun me come fiddle-strum-drum me croon me retune me twirl and unfurl me then swing me and sing me in three-quarter time.
