Dance While We Can (poem)

Video just gets better

What will we say of a life like a song

It kisses the breeze to welcome its day

In tones to tempt flowers as it sweeps along

We’ll dance while we can an echo might say


It twinkles through hearts of birds in the trees

Who teach it to clouds which chance to pass by

Which write across skies such moments as these

To dance while we can comes heaven’s reply


The silence of night may add clarity

To tones of the past that then seem so near

And timelessness claims a sweet melody

So dance while we can while song is still here


What will we say of song from life’s stream

That dance that we had was only a dream

The Last Waltz

Lovely poem Mhatter99..... and its true-

Life is a song to be sung in tune,

with low, high notes of woes & fortune,

step of efforts rhythms with the song

and the life thus dance to move on & on !

Wonderful poetry.....thank you. Yes, to dance while you can or stand and look at the ocean while you can, to be with family & friends we love while we can, and above all else, to do the things that God has orchestrated for us to do, to be in His perfect Will. God's blessings to you, mhatter!...Helen
