Disco Tree - Poem by Adeline A Roberts

Disco tree in the night sky
Won't you dance
Dance for me

Shake your leaves
Like a wild child
Wave them here
Sway them for me

Disco tree


Poet's Notes about The Poem

i was sitting in a classroom on the last floor of my classroom block during a black out a night. A flashlight was shone from the second floor down to a tree below. The wind started to blow heavily on the tree that it looked like it were dancing in a spotlight.
