A Touch Of Moonlight - Poem by Waltzing Mouse

A touch of moonlight
Whispering over my skin
Shimmering in the night

Silver women whirl
To a silent tune along my arm
They jump and leap and prance and twirl

As sudden as the moonlight came
It disappeared behind the trees
Moonlight’s fleeting moment of fame
