T’was an evening, but none like any other

With a dazzle truly divine

Innocent in its playful beginning

Never seeming but benign

Knowing not my bearings then

Led me to call for her assistance

“Enter this road thus,” she said

Behold, there she stood in the distance

Hollering out an awkward greeting

Averting her precious gaze

Towards her did I wobblingly hasten

The moment a silver haze

As we climbed the tower to the party within

Catching shy glances of each other

Her maiden friend laughed at her whim

And goaded me on to surrender

Rise did my Lady for a black gown to adorn

Yet her own beauty did dazzle me despite the clothed splendour

And I found myself welcoming the madness

:) indeed, my brother, indeed...

also, there's something special about this poem, a little puzzle if you will. it might be a lil hard to figure out since you don't know the context, but let's just say that there's a latitudinal line in all of this...
