Spritely Dance – Marjorie Walsh

Spritely Dance

By Marjorie Walsh

 

Cold dawn breaks free from snow-pale moon

Spirits tumble in unruly dance

Only once she lilts the tune

We evermore through fables prance

 

Spirits tumble in unruly dance

Drifting free across the sky

We evermore through fables prance

Never asking where or why

 

Drifting free across the sky

Fair folk light on snow-bare branches

Never asking where or why

Finding the way through simple chances

 

Fair folk light on snow-bare branches

Cold light shines out of the past

Finding the way through simple chances

We come for the fate for which we are cast

 

Cold light shines out of the past

Cold dawn breaks free from snow-pale moon

We come for the fate for which we are cast

Only once she lilts the tune
