Bonedancer - Poem by Violet Llewellyn

Bonedancer upon your prizes
With rhythms of movement
Like feet turned to feathers
Glory in your triumph
Shining white in the moonlight

Pull from them stories
Notes of sadness; of victory
And finally, of death
Bonedancer, tell their tales
Poignant like piano keys

They have great fates
Breathing under starlit skies
Do not think Bonedancer cruel
For who are you to judge
To decide the meaning of freedom?

Couldn't it be in murder?
Couldn't it be in death?
