Summer Night's Dance
All was silver and gold that endless summer night
Dancing in fields in the time between times
The sun, moon, the stars in that perfect sky
Clothed in white dresses, borrowed from a friend.
Each dress washed in holy water, then donned
To dance in the vineyards, singing for soulmates
Young men observed unseen, each seeking
Their balanced counterpart, their perfect one
She who would make their soul complete
Mother to his children, helpmeet of his life
Rich girls borrowed dresses from girls with less
Poor girls, garbed in gowns of princesses
Money was no matter, for character’s measure
The singular quality sought on this summer night.
Each man would choose, according to his fancy
Should she deign to accept, then they would marry
Two come to stand under the wedding canopy
Glass would shatter, they leave united as one.
