Watching Ghost Dance

They danced in circles spinning round,
And moved so fast they seemed to fly,
Their feet could hardly touch the ground.
As folk collapsed I thought they’d die;
But others kept on whirling by.

I thought they’d dance throughout the night,
Their faces painted, dressed in white.
The chants and cries could wake the dead.
A whir of people - what a sight !
And then they stopped. ‘I flew,’ one said.

    It takes a poet to expound on ghosts in a creative way and you did justice to the ghastly creatures Jack. I feel like dancing with them. Luv, Elizabeth
