The whirling ballet of a shadow.

The flames cast shadows on the wall

Flickering of flames music for the dark ball

Silence for the dark light

Twirling of a shadow's flight

Nothing disturbed in its wake

The shadows just flicker and shake

Taking a multitude of shapes

The shifting leaving many agape

The dance lasts until fires die

But in the dark shadows still fly

A ballet of the dark

No dancer leaving a mark

But even it must end

For even shadows tear and rend
