THE DANCING GIRLS


The dancing girls

kick up their heels

to an invisible tune,

in the grass

of a summer meadow

while the sun shines down.


They dance just for joy,

carefree, and sure.

Their young feet rise

the dust from the ground,

to swirl in the sun’s rays,

and settle soft, like feathers.


The music they follow

is only heard

by the very young,

and the unselfconscious.

It plays inside their own heads,

a rhythm born of loving life.


Soon they will tire

under the noon-day sun,

and collapse on the warm ground

in a giggling heap of girls,

feeling the sweet freedom

of summer days, with friends.
