A dream from the night before

A dream from the night before Held her in its arms A ballerina Tripping each key That played his life The waters Seduced and sucked His uncertain step Towards The precipice  Luring him close Into a time When no morning star Would rise A stolen spring A lost summer Victims of Destructive distraction A dream from the night before Copyright Geoff Francis 2020   Hunters bed Copyright Geoff Francis 2001
