Whimsical Dancer



Perchance you find me in the fields of green

Deliciously I prance as a new fawn

In innocence and bashful recklessness

Iím unaware that Iíve awakened dawn.


Perhaps you warn me of potential harm

And cast a doubt on my excited mirth

You question choice advising me of cost Ė

"Have you forgotten what the dance is worth?"


And if you spy me in the pouring rain

Soaked through in natureís warm liquor divine

Then drink this passion and join in my dream

And gleeful you shall be on freedomís wine.

Author's Notes:

My thanks to my favorite meter man for adding his coins of talent to my meter.

I look up to heaven and say it is already filled to the brim with poets like us.

So on this earth letís continue to build and frame the sky with words for a truss.

   Beauty & adventure are thrilling.

"To drink this passion & join you

in a dream" is an awakening to be

rememberd. Especially

since you warn us of danger!

All the best,

for a poet's take

on romance & nature,

A very delightful read, Cindy...And sometimes, regardless of the price, we just have to dance and live in the moment!

A beautiful dance...

What a beautiful, uplifting poem about the human spirit Cindy. It is so good to see you writing again and in your usual grand style! Your meter man has taught you well.  Hugs,   Henry

Beautifully written and always with a stroke of artistic flair.  Your meaning seems to impart a sophisticated and somewhat subtle level of depth in its playful interaction between the innocent and the protector, between dream and reality.  Remarkable relational insight in so few lines.  Nice work.  Tristan

Soaked through in natureís warm liquor divine Then drink this passion and join in my dream And gleeful you shall be on freedomís wine - beautiful - and while i wouldn't know poetic meter from a traffic meter, i know this is wonderfully lilting poem - you are back on top!

Comment By: FreeAlfred Berggren on July 29, 2010 11:17:28 PM Report
Nice meter structure in your Quatrains with lines 2 and 4 rhyming. I'd like to join you, if I may. I'll toss cares aside and drink the nectar of the gods with you.
Comment By: FreeRobert on July 29, 2010 11:11:14 PM Report
Cindy this is a wonderful picture of nature. Everyone knows Walt Disney's Bambi but this poem brought to mind  a scene from the novel Bambi

 by Felix Salten probably no longer in print for I read it when I was a child. I enjoyed this very much!
