The Dance

This, for the record, has to be my favorite poem/song I’ve written in a long time. Written with Kristen Kath, my ‘bard’ from Guild Wars 2, in mind… But again, no references to their material so it’s very much not setting specific. Enjoy!
The Dance

A howl on the wind
Shivers down my spine
And leaves dance again
To the song of the night

Close your eyes and listen
Hear the melody
Sweet, sweet harmony

See the moonlight glisten
Oh that lovely
Silver fantasy

Dance with me as the wind blows
Twirl beneath the cloud that glows
Like moonlight caught inside a mist
And feel the cool night’s kiss

A nightingale sings for we
Who stay awake to hear
Her notes pierce the darkness so readily
To offer a shield against fear

Close your eyes and listen
Hear the melody
Sweet, sweet harmony

See the moonlight glisten
Oh that lovely
Silver fantasy

Dance with me as the bird sings
Twirl with me through fields and rings
Of flowers and produce all in their rows
And leap and tumble where e’re your heart goes

The crickets chirp
A chorus arises
Ehcoing o’er
The waving grasses

Their song will stir
So many surprises
Not seen before
By we lasses

Close your eyes and listen
Hear the melody
Sweet, sweet harmony

See the moonlight glisten
Oh that lovely
Silver fantasy

Butterflies wake in the night
With painted wings they take flight
Coloring images outlined by stars
That we may see them anew from afar

Dance with me as they do fly
Twirling and spinning while they flutter by
Our eyes will turn to the blanket above
Where winged, colored patterns meet white of the dove

A howl on the wind
Shivers down my spine
And leaves dance again
To the song of the night

Let us be no different
From this melody
Honoring life’s sweet harmony

And let us be reverent
Of all we have seen
‘Neath the silver fantasy

Dance with me as the day comes
Twirl and spin ere the music is done
Like just so much sand
Captured in a hand

There’s only so long
We can sing this song
