Swing in Black and White
Bonus Poem for Day 038 - 20150207
Pale the color, turn back the years,
I want to swing with you my dear
this night in shades of black and white.
Strip back the years to a time when
dance was the king, and we would swing
the entire night, you by my side.
RKO pictures be the banner
on which we'll pattern our moves
swinging our hearts across the floor.
Dance will change us, I'm Fred Astaire,
you're Ginger Rogers in our Swing Time.
Playing parts in our dance revelry.
Cole Porter sing, Berlin play score,
You'll play the hot romantic lead,
and I'll play the second fiddle.
Big band play the tune, alight the night,
inspiration will move our feet,
dance the hot swing with me tonight.
We are dancing close cheek to cheek,
heaven is that place I'll be when
we're both swinging in black and white.
This may be our Missouri Waltz,
never fear love, we'll dance again,
we'll both swing in black and white.
