A London Dinner At The Tower Hotel

I'll pick you up outside your room,
Outside your bedroom door;
I'll thrill to see you there, abloom,
And tell you so, and more.

I'll kiss your cheek, your hand I'll take
Explaining what I see;
I'll see all it takes to make
A sunset dream for me.

You'll take my arm, I'll walk you down
To where we meet to dine;
You'll dazzle in your evening gown
As fine as sparkled wine.

We'll make our entrance, take our place
Herein the diners' hall;
I'll sit there with you, face-to-face
And envied, so, by all.

Style / type: 
Structured: Western
Last few words: 
Jerryk and myself are to take the girls out to dinner, I in London and he is to show me how it's done in The States. I look forward to his company in verse very much.

With this charming poem, I don't stand a chance to best you. I'll be lucky if my own bride of 51 years doesn't leave me for you, the ultimate romantic. However, I must make an effort to save face in the eyes of my wife. At any rate, your poem will be impossible for me to beat. BTW, here, all restaurants are closed, except for Take-Outs. Can I claim that inconvenience as a handicap? Very good work, Alan.
Jerry

I'm proud to be friends with you, an ocean width apart. Hotels and restaurants are closed here too but we both have memories (just about in my case) don't we? I'm sure you will come up with a fine story to tell.

The tower hotel, London, is by Tower Bridge and the Tower of London. A great place to stay when in town. John Wayne stayed there when filming his film, set in London, Brannigan. He famously jumps the bridge, as it starts to open, in a Ford car. May try it myself someday.

I hope that you are all safe and well in your part of the planet and looking forward to better times.

Kindest regards to you all, Alan

Thanks for your comment, I appreciate it.
Myself and Jerryk each did a poem themed on taking a lady out to dinner. We did it for a little fun write to amuse ourselves during this time of uncertainty ~ he in the States and I here in Blighty. I am pleased that others have enjoyed our efforts. Jerry's is very good, I think,
