       As the Dancers Dance

                              As the dancer’s dance together at night

                              until early morning shines its light

                              Pulsating rhythms surround the pair

                              as they twirl each other without a care

                              As the music casts its hypnotic spell

                              the dancers movement tries to foretell

                              The story of how they began this dance

                              if not by plan then merely by chance

                              Flickering shadows dance across the floor

                              as they mingle and dance without a care more

                              As they lie asleep under the moon so far

                              nestled so soundly by the swirling stars

                              Tranquil in the quiet coolness of the air

                              eclipsed only by wind blowing in their hair

Watercolor memories captured in time

                              and for just a moment you will be mine

                              Whispers of light illuminate the wall

                              till awakened at dawn by the songbirds call

                              While the soothing coolness of mornings mist

                              sprinkles droplets of dew as the lovers kiss

                              Until next time as they dance all night long

                              and awaken as the sun beckons at dawn
