A ballad a day for June 2014 - day 23 - Danced

Once upon a time there was a pretty little girl
Who wore long silky braids and twisted and twirled
She spent her long days writing poems and songs
About lovers she dreamed and the lines on her palms

About good luck and happy days to come
About rain and the taste upon her tongue
The pretty little girl a woman she became
Perfected her cursive and the way she signed her name

She spent her days dancing, singing songs she used to know
The lovers that she knew, she had to let them go
The one to stay forever had yet to come her way
But she didn't fret, she danced and kept her faith
