Lovely Girls

Lovely girls

Dressed in gold

Shimmer and whirl.

Can’t you see them

O’er there?

Spinning, dancing,

Their hair a mess,

Their buttons half undone,

And an unearthly shine in their eyes.

Oh, the joy!

The fire in their eyes!

But then the shot of the gun

Ended all.

The dance of flying-

‘Twas all undone.
