Dancing In December

Dancing

Dancing to the tune of the old year

To the memories it hopes it will hold dear

Twirling around on the big floor

Dancing in December again

Dancing

Hoping the footwork will be strong

Swaying along to the same song

Hoping the spin is not too long

Dancing in December again

Dancing

Twirling to all of the days left

Weaving away from the bereft

Hoping the rhythm is well met

Dancing in December again

Hoping

Lunging and dipping and lilting

Trusting the sequence not stilted

Nothing out here has been filtered

Dancing in December again

Dreaming

Keeping a balance that’s good now

A nice hold, and then, I don’t know how

But a perfect and dignified low bow

Dancing in December again.
