Golden tassels, wavy links,
Luscious ankles, what a grace!
Greeted me the lithesome minx,
Up her leg a line I traced.

“What’s thy secret, pray do tell?”
At her peerless feet I fell.
Not too long my beauty lingered,
Her wet lips said, “I’m a swinger!”

The Anklet
ooohhh I like this! Very good. Short and yet lacking nothing. Much enjoyed Teflon!

the secret of the anklet

I am surprised at how few people know about the meaning of an anklet.

Do you see them worn around where you live?

I've just found out that internet has image galleries of women wearing them, all dedicated to this alternative lifestyle.

Teflon's anklet
I didn't know, and I wear one, I guess it is good not too many know about it! Yikes. Hey Tef what about toe rings? Any hidden meaning there????

Those naughty anklets!

Nae, I don't know any significance of toe rings. I don't see them much.

As far as the anklet sites, they names are just too corny:
(decent and beautiful); AnkletsPage.html anklet-wife.html

plus many limitless results from search engines.

I don't disagree with the beautiful and romantic tones that Jessica mentioned, but my first impression was sexy. I like the shortness of the poem and how it seems to accentuate the brevity of the encounter.

I might have swapped the second and third lines of the first stanza though, given the small space in which you're establishing a rhythm.

I enjoyed this. -Philo

Philo's Hot, too!

Your way it reads as well! I like the abab-aabb rhythm for what I perceive as its ka-boom delivery.

I believe in the short-and-sweet approach.

A Secret for Windchime
The rhymed poetry is easy, and I can tell you why – I hear a rhyme, “field-heeled”, “land-befriend” and I don’t need to seek imagery, I remember Blake’s “On the cloud a child I saw, and he, laughing, said to me” and Childe Harold and all the innuendos, and the rest is my methodophilia, a flowchart: A. classy beauty of nature, B. classy elegance of women, C. a juxtaposition of a thing mundane to A or B.
But to write free verse or prose where a much-needed imagery must play the central role – this is quite a challenge.

naughty links "links"
I wouldn't let the URLs discourage you or any woman from wearing the anklet.

If being approached does not bother her, she should just enjoy herself showing pretty legs. I think they would also help a quiet woman make friends...

The men who *know* I think are tactful enough to make a great conversation partner. One of them maybe Teflon.
