The Sisters Dance - Poem by Margaret Hart

Two sisters gathered for the dance
Competing, fighting for a glance
One dark one fair they set their sight
On love and romance for the night

He came upon them with a smile
Said 'Fairest won't you dance awhile? '
He took her hand so they could glide
Across the dance floor side by side

The couple danced all through the eve
The dark one watched too stunned to leave
How could you do this sister Fair
I'm all alone, do you not care?

The fair one laughed for she was cruel
Of course I won you little fool
You sit and judge me on your throne
But look at you, you're all alone

The dark one wept for she was right
No one for her on this cold night
She hung her head in misery
Why couldn't Dad have chosen me
