A Season's Dance

She wanted me to dance, to dance away It was the spring, within the month of May Still to this day I can see her movements We went around in circles, made statements Sun was filtered down from heaven above Warming the ground and flowers with a shove Letting things bloom is the dance we both shared Gorgeous moment, as one showing we cared Then we slipped into the summer’s proud dance Heat masterfully expresses the prance Around I spin you, and you delve in me I feel a piece of you in summer breeze Here again flowers run abundantly They enjoy the storms as those flow freely We danced throughout the summer with some sweat Proudly showing we danced, best as of yet And now the dance blows quickly into dusk Colors shows beauty like our dance-like musk Leaves shower down onto our very steps We dance into the warmth of the doorsteps Glowing around from the cool sunsets here Things slow down and don’t burn up like with fear She showed me her dancing moves with romance Awesome feelings come from our swinging dance I spin her around in the winter’s grace I clasp her tight as the snow falls in place Whiteness covers the ground and life ceases Leaving beauty from death and its pieces The air looks stale and stagnant with a bite Showing blossoms of winter blooms alright We danced with a deep feeling in this time Frozen was our breath, but warm our sublime She steps it off, and returns back to spring Feeling the warmth back onto her gold ring After a year of seasons we return To the start of real beauty to discern

    Dance: provocateur of hearts, tester of wills, matchmaker of souls. How could any mortal resist its temptations? Excellent work!
