She danced

I Sang
-Carl Sandburg

I sang to you and the moon
But only the moon remembers.
I sang
O reckless free-hearted
free-throated rythms,
Even the moon remembers them
And is kind to me.


She Danced  (in response to Carl)
– maysa peterson

She danced the shadows
edge and twirled her hair moonlit
she danced
toes dug deep into the sand
arms stretched the stars and…
the shadows laughed the dance
even without you.
