The Sky Almost Danced
The Sky almost Danced tonight.
Maybe it was just Clouds,
Gliding along on the wind
Illuminated lightly by a hidden Moon.
Maybe if I’d never seen them,
The Northern Lights caressing the Sky,
And never felt the Infectious Joy
Of Dancing beneath their Dancing Light,
Maybe I wouldn’t have recognized
The Quivering Upper Atmosphere.
Maybe I would have turned away
With a Thought of possible rain tomorrow.
But I’ve been there, so I know,
On a night with nothing to see but clouds
I can still feel it in the air
And, while standing still, can Dance and Soar,
Glad for what I’ve known before!
