THE BUTTON-UP BLOUSE

THE BUTTON-UP BLOUSE

Forgive me for mentioning

I love a button-up blouse…

Pink or blue or white will do—

They look good on my spouse!

Ah the memories of girls

Who had buttons to try…

Theirs are opposite to ours,

I’m still not sure just why!

One in college allowed

One or two unbuttoned til…

She stopped any further  research,

Though of me she thought not ill.

I remember one time

When “gap-o-sis” got me caught…

In saying what I didn’t have to—

My Dad was anger fraught.

A girl  he had chased after

Offered  him to see…

What delights lay underneath

And he did…naturally.

That woman was his fave

Until the future wife came ’round…

When that woman cut things off

It really threw him down!

He doesn’t need

To see one undressed…

To know that he likes that style

On anyone the best!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
