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

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
