Rite Of Passage (Day 4 of 12 Days Before Christmas Poetry Challenge)

Greetings all! I thought it would be fun to take the 12 Days of Christmas song and use that as inspiration for a series of 12 poems from now through Christmas Eve. In case you have forgotten or don’t know, the 12 Days of Christmas song talk about a series of 12 gifts given to a true love the first 12 days of Christmas. Using the gifts as a guide, I will be putting up a poem each day by 9am Central Time. These poems will incorporate the gifts or the idea of the gift into different or modern contexts. Since this will be happening the 12 days before Christmas, I will be going from gift 12 down to gift 1 instead of the other way round. Hope you enjoy!

Gift 9- Ladies dancing

Music swirls in familiar patterns
As they dance in fits and starts
Deaf to all of life’s delusions
Can’t help but admire boundless energy
As I despair in the knowledge
That the world slinks ever closer
Towards the switch
Let them dance
Let them dance
Even if only a little while longer
