by Joanna Hatcher
I danced and the stars moved with me
The ground lept beneath my bare feet
I was exalted by the silvery moonlight, and the air was crisp, cool, and sweet.
I danced for Orion, watching me from on high
I danced with the wind flying my hair like a kite.
I had the world to myself for a lifetime, it seemed;
With arms thrown wide open I danced over field, lane, and stream
Then I woke in the morning from a beautiful dream
and of joy
when the stars
danced with me.
