The Dancer 

So magical, her dancing 

Which brightened up the night
Soon she was surrounded
By a million points of light

The stars were all around her
They shared with her their glow
Which sparkled just like diamonds
Or like freshly fallen snow

Such joy was in her movement
And grace in every motion
She reminded me of waves
As they roll by in the ocean

I watched her with delight
And couldn’t help but smile
For as I sat and watched her
I felt such freedom for a while.

Soon the night was ending
The stars no longer shone
The dancing lady gone
And I was on my own

A certain notion struck me
As I left for my abode
If we spent more time doing what we love, perhaps we all might glow…
