Love In Victorian Times....Rosarian Sonnet

Time hath no pleasure when lovers meet
A kiss on the cheek was to be discreet
Only when promised and truly betrothed
They oft times arranged for a chaperone
For they were not ever to be left alone;
A hansome Carriage for her would call
Mother chaperone with coachman and all
Plunged neckline with cape she was clothed
Not a moment was she with he to be free
But would dance at the ball for all to see;
The orchestra had played a slow minuet
Dancing apart when only finger tips touch
The only close contact they had as such
Oh! that wonder they shalt ne-er forget.
