Midnight Dance

Midnight Dance

A Poem by M. Elizabeth Archer

Yes, I wrote something romantic. No, you may not mock me for it.


The midnight air is cool and sweet,

The swirling mist is fine.

From far away musicians play

A song in quarter time.

A dozen couples dance and twirl

Across the marble floor.

They move along to the same song

That played the night before.

So come and dance with me, my love!

And think how real it seems;

All thoughts erase that such a place

Only exists in dreams.

For every night we meet here at

The dance floor by the sea.

And through the haze the music plays

For only you and me.

So dance with me tonight, my love!

Too soon the dawn shall break.

Our song in mind, perhaps we'll find

It plays still when we wake.

That was so very pretty and sweet. It made me want to turn on Claire de Lune and dance all night long with my love. I love the last four lines. It speaks of longing and never wanting to part from your lover, but also gives hope that he/ she will still be with you in the morning and every morning after that. Wonderful poetry, my friend. I look forward to more.
