The Dancing Night

Written by: Caleb Smith

Four boys
Under clear Arkansas sky
Lazing on a hillside
Dreaming dawn is nigh

Many years ago it was
But I remember it still
How could I forget?
What I saw...upon that hill

Something strange it seemed
Was weaving through the stars
Our boyish minds were fearing
This strange thing was from Mars

It came so close
A mile or two away
Then flickered out, and reappeared
But still, it would not stay

We stared in disbelief
At the dancing lights
And not a word was spoken
For the entire night

But we all knew...just what it was
When it left upon the winds
And told each other with
Silence...between friends
