Shadows Dance

by R.S. Jacobs

forest, trees, tall trees, glade

Two darted silently through the dark glade,
To escape death by Imperial blade.
They ran side by side in the pitch dark night.
They fought side by side in the rebel fight.
Neither spoke,
Neither paused,
Neither broke any laws.

Shadows dance at the sight of them,
And the bright moon sings on a whim.
Shadows dance at the sight of them,
And the bright moon sings on a whim.

When daylight came, then all would be right,
But they would not hope until first light.
Even these two would at some time tire,
So they came to rest on a rocky spire.
Neither spoke
As they paused.
Condemned by all laws.

Shadows dance at the sight of them,
And the bright moon sings on a whim.
Shadows dance at the sight of them,
And the bright moon sings on a whim.

bird, white bird, dove, bird on groundNight drew on far too long; they were found.
The Empire came; their fates were bound.
The two figures knew they had to part.
Fair took wing, and was off like a dart.
Beast took paw, as the two moved apart.

tiger, cub, tiger cub, tiger looking through window

Light dances at the sight of them,
And the bright sun shines down on them.
Wing and paw moved their ways,
To be reunited in later days.
