Dare To Dance (poem)

Updated on October 15, 2012

Come dare to dance with me

And we will dare the sea

Such dreams which we will free

To show what dreams might be


Such flare we’ll show to stars

There shine no flare as ours

What poor men’s shine now scars

We’ll raise the poor men’s bars


And then we’ll raise their dreams

To when they then see gleams

To float high when world schemes

Their hope to float on streams


And those that hope for night

Our song sets those aright

For love our song brings light

And pairs in love take fight


They’ll search for pairs around

Like us whose search is sound

Few hearts like us abound

Who dance while hearts resound

      M, you've just described how I always felt when I saw my Mom and Dad dance - they were awesome. They could roller skate as a pair, too.

      Terrific poem - voted up.
