Poem - Dance With Another One

Regulars on the social dancing scene know the draw of those times when mutual intents combine in a flurry of steps. Hands meet and their response to the song is all that matters. The poem “Dance With Another One” is a lyrical window into the magic of dance.


Dance With Another One
Poem for Day 154 – 20150603

There's that special day of the week
when we put on our dancing shoes.
The sun will dim and the stars will shine
as we leave the rest of life behind.
Familiar faces will welcome us,
future friends met for the first time.
All paths met with equal acceptance
in this meeting of those with one goal.

Just to dance, just to dance,
that's all we want tonight,
just to dance with another one.

We're here to consort for a spell,
to be intimate in ways dancers can.
Connections made in swishing shadows,
the need filled by a fellow man.
Another's touch will wisk away
all our troubles and doubts combined.
We'll forget the stress of life
as we melt into another's arms.

Just to dance, just to dance,
that's all we want tonight,
just to dance with another one.

Some songs are happy, others sad,
we'll find our own reason to move
on the dance floor in rapt response
to the DJ's medley of tunes.
Time will pass as songs are played,
the evening flies as the end arrives.
We'll say goodbye with good cheer
and know we'll soon draw near again.

Just to dance, just to dance,
that's all we want tonight,
just to dance with another one,
just to dance with another one.
