As Seasons Dance--By Suzanne Delaney--United States

As Seasons Dance

Wing footed winter’s dance is of grey skies,
bare branch silhouettes in silver gowns
dormant magic within icy poses
brilliant halls bedecked with frost flowers

Into the Grand Ballrooms of springtime
The sweep of pastel ball gowns all awhirl
Fresh pirouettes agleam with sparkling dewdrops
To bring alive the dreaming garden songs

Until the partners change at summer’s start
Now gowns sway green as -green as willow boughs
And all the maiden’s heads are strewn with flowers
While love renewed replaces all past cares

Then as the leaves turn slowly- red to brown
All regal shades of velvet now adorn
The dancers bow the way of beauty flown
Their hearts have pledged a promise to return
