Strictly Forest Ballroom

Beneath the rays of the glitter ball sun
On a forest path a dance has begun
Two butterflies waltz on gossamer wings
A light leafy bough gently dips and swings
Lindy-hop birds lightly skip on a branch
Scattering blossom in a soft avalanche
A tuxedoed beetle all dapper in black
A bouncer watching the crowd from the back
A flush of flies in a frenzied display
Out of control and in everyone’s way
A fat drunken bee kissing flowers in blue
Humming a melody as he drifts through
A grey boulder clad in a thick moss cloak
Refuses to dance with a sprightly oak
Too soon it’s all over, they all drift away
But promise to gather some other day
