"Our Dance" copyright 2005 John J. Rigo "Roses Amidst Thorns" (Former winning poem in a Collin County, Texas writing contest)

let us be silly and dance
swirling and twirling across the floor.
 
Our youth flashes before our laughing faces. 52 more words

The laughter and droning noises had a hollow metallic sound.
 
The human Ferris wheel was in motion around the center spoke. 201 more words
