Velvet Astraea Dido

The Dance Of Innocence - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

The palace of the Sun rose up in columns
As girls of the forest, nymphs dance around in glee
Free as the sun and moon that shine
Ungrasping the agony and hatred of mankind.

Little laughters paint the leaves with due
Their standstill cover the darkness with light.
A new bright morning rising with the beat
Of echos and melodies thru their thumping feet.

Wind blowing through the swift courses of the sky
Make mine your fancy and take this liberty.
Open your thoughts to the change of day
As radiance guide your spirit away.
