Dancing Shadows In the Moonlight [in Response to Poems Previously Posted]
Ruth, she comes forth on a whim
and mystically draws all the good ones in
with a rhyming lure mind you,
no, 'tis not a curse, you silly fool!
But with a wave she draws in Marilyn,
with mystic forces in skies a'beckon,
then Marge and Skyfyre come along
Ruth has them humming all a song…
Soon Sharon joins, and Denise she stays
immersed in Ruth's mysterious ways
to bring to one and all some delight
of Dancing Shadows in the Moonlight.
Ruth brings out her pen-like wand
encircling all with poetic bond
and there twinkles a magic gleam
amidst starlight and moonlight beam.
Ruth whispers, her voice a mere dream
under dancing shadows in the moonlight,
and wither you come to her, 'tis foreseen
under dancing shadows in moonlight's beam.
