Dancing stars

A quartet of short poems

Let’s dance to the song

the stars are singing,

while the radio murmurs in blue and red,

swaying with eternal lights.

 

I saw you on the outskirts of time,

Palely loitering among the lilies.

I called your name but you were gone

Leaving a bright trail of stardust

The echo of your passing.

 

Still singing in the shadows,

night becomes day,

a starburst of light.

 

Beneath the roses I shall wait,

Until the petals fall and the last sun sets.

I will catch the tail of a passing star,

And join you in the firmament.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
