BALLET OF TREES

The earth is a huge theater at night
The moon a spotlight for a fabulous ballet ...
Dancers dressed in their green flowing gowns ...
sway to the music of the soft breeze ...
to the rhythm of the wind.
They whirl in the moonlight ...
before their audience of shining stars ...
Beautiful ballerinas!
Their slim forms bending low ...
tossing their heads heavenward ...
twirling and sweeping outstretched arms ...
through the brisk evening air ...
then bowing when their dance is done!
The stars blink out with the coming dawn ...
and the green dancers fade into stately trees ...
The theater becomes a busy world!
