DANCING BAREFOOT IN THE GRASS

 

While you were sleeping soundly

I slipped into the night

Dancing barefoot in the grass

Bathed in silvery light

 

I tossed bright sequins to the sky

Where they shone down on me

The moon then smiled and tipped his hat

And winked flirtatiously

 

I kissed the flowers’ sleepy heads

But let them slumber on

I skipped and did some pirouettes

On my moon-struck lawn

 

My hair was flying in the breeze

Moonbeams kissed my cheek

An owl turned his feathery head

Pretending not to peek

 

I woke up all the butterflies

For just a little while

So they could join me as I danced

I think I saw them smile

 

Then, as the sun peeked over hill

I crept back to my bed

And quickly learned it wasn’t real

But only dreams, instead
