When children dance

When children dance, the delight light shines,

Sparkles like fireworks crossing indigo skies,

Cascades as incandescent rays of sun,

Pure, Roman-candle joy Catherine-wheels of fun.


What raptures beam from wide-lidded eyes,

Warm-balm each heart-string like Morecambe and Wise,

Trickles treacle-toffee thoughts down memory lane,

How wonderful life is when care-free from blame.
