Fire Dance

Yellow and orange
Dance
The summer dance
Between the branches
Of the trees
 
In the moonlight
They spread warmth
And light
The music stops
Orange asks yellow
For another dance
 
The courting couple
Dance on the rooftops on homes
Children and parents
Come out to the
Yard
Mouths agape
To watch them
 
By the light of the moon
They leap from house
To house
Haystack
To haystack
 
No one can
Stop them
They will dance all night
Until they burn out
 
As they are dancing
They’re leaving behind
Trails
Trails that spread
They spread more fire dancers
 
Yellow and orange
Dance
Dance through the forest
On the soft grass
 
The longer they dance
The faster the
Music
The more trails they
Spread
 
The new dancers
Begin to
Change
Color
 
From orange
To blue
From yellow
To green
 
They all choose
Partners
And begin to dance
 
Yellow and orange
Come to a stand-
still
A wide river blocks
Their
Path
 
Each dances to a
Narrow boat
And pushes off
 
They dance on
Their boats
 They dance them
Clean through
 
And fall
As their souls
Rise
From the water
