Find us in the starry light by H.E. Grahame

Find us in the starry light
-a villanelle
Find us in the starry light
Spinning dolce lullaby
Waltzing in the inky night
A Mambo through black and white
Like fireworks in July
Find us in the starry light
Plies in golden spotlight
To symphonies in the sky
Waltzing in the inky night
A Pas de Deux in flight
Like a cosmic butterfly
Find us in the starry light
Pirouettes in black midnight
to an orchestra on high
Waltzing in the inky night
Spinning like a satellite
With this song of “you and I”
Find us in the starry light
Waltzing in the inky night
