The Summer Dance

The party isn't over
But some are ready to go
and some are already gone


Her gown
Fresh and bright at the start

Mockingbird in the crabapple(1)

blue in the pink

Sea of tulips


Shows the wear and tear of the dance
Chewed



The lights will dim

and the debris with begin to blow
across the dance floor
Playing with color swap



Where so many found a partner
TRES pair Armleder

The colors will change along the walls
as it reaches its close,
bit of color


The weary dancers slow their spinning
and prepare their exit
Twinkly dragonfly


It's been a wonderful party
and all good things must end
Girls at the Oxbow


But not yet...
Sun in the sky
