Creole Girl
by Leslie M. Collins

When you dance,
Do you think of Spain,
Purple skirts and clipping castanets,
Creole Girl?

When you laugh,
Do you think of France,
Golden wine and mincing minuets,
Creole Girl?

When you sing,
Do you think of young America,
Grey guns and battling bayonets,
Creole Girl?

When you cry,
Do you think of Africa,
Blue nights and casual canzonets,
Creole Girl?
