I Dreamt I Danced With You


Last night I dreamt I danced with you -
We Waltzed between the stars
Then Quickstepped through the asteroids
Passed Jupiter and Mars.

I wore a gown of crimson silk
And you a waistcoat bright -
Glittering ‘cross the star-filled dome
We danced through all the night.

With eyes that met and cheek-to-cheek
Enfolded in your arms -
Your hand upon my slender waist
Enraptured by your charms.

We Samba’d in the twilight hours
Together with such grace -
On clouds of ether floating high
We Tango’d on through space.

Then falling down to earth again
We Cha-Cha’d round the moon -
And as the music filled the void
I felt our bodies swoon.

Last night I dreamt I danced with you
But now the dream has gone
Yet in my heart the memory
Shall linger on and on.

    Last night I dreamt I danced with you
    But now the dream has gone
    Yet in my heart the memory
    Shall linger on and on.

    this is amazing.
    you are a gem Val,
    the way you write,
    everybody cant do that.

    The most wonderful dances we dance in our imagination.
    If we manage to stick a bit of it in our memory
    and pluck and here and there a flake of it
    it will brighten our life and that of others
    Fantastic poem, Val. (Report) Reply

    What a gorgeous dream you had! The way you narrate your poem, it feels like we've been dancing with you. A lovely flight of fancy; esp like the crimson silk gown and quickstepping through asteroids! (Report) Reply

    Dancing for a while is very kind of you Val. The duo dancing all across the space is a pleasant thing and I would like to see you both performing from a distance....
    At the end of this dream let your mind begin to dance Val.. (Report) Reply

    Can I borrow your dream please - I forget what I dreamt last night but I know it wasn't as good as this. (Report) Reply

    Escorted to a magic land where two souls reel round holding hands in tune to the celestial symphony and made one in spirit.... Though the dream is evanescent, it can still give you a hang over for days... I am sure! (Report) Reply

    Val I have said it so many times, you are the greatest. No one can write verse like you can. Beautiful poem God bless. (Report) Reply

    Though this dance may have ended...the band plays on. Beautiful, sensual write, two lovers swaying in the night.
    Can I just have one more moondance, with you, my friend...as Van Morrison alludes to. Lovely, two steppin' along with your words. PEACE and a wonderful partner, my wish for you on this day....continue to dance (Report) Reply
