Mid Dec. 96

Samuel G Cleaver 1969 (Beeville Texas)

Black Velvet engulfing us all,
But a small venture outside
Shows the great dance of light
(sparks... caused by lovers whose passion can not hide)
meteors screaming through the night
Burning the black material in its fiery wake
only moments does it take
But a beautiful wonderful sight
i wish we could watch tonight
