My Maori dancer

Art College break up
End of year party at pub
Beer, laughs and music

She was so petite
Dancing like a little bird
I put my drink down

Walked over there
Nodded at her and she smiled
Brown skin shone for me

She was a Maori
Her eyes sparkled her face laughed
Dance floor was crowded

She let me hold her
We talked of everything
Then she laughed at me

Do you know she said
Everyone will think you are 
Dancing by yourself

I still think of her
All these many years later
My Maori dancer

  1. It is good to have someone special all for ourselves - and to dance with them
