Feelings Are Dancing



Some feelings are sweeping. Some never expand.
Some show worth of keeping.
Some never withstand.
Some feelings are doting. Some never adore.
Some show worth of gloating.
Some never outpour.
Some feelings are fleeting. Some never betray.
Some show worth of greeting.
Some never display.
Some feelings are laughing. Some never chuckle.
Some show worth of staffing.
Some never buckle.
Some feelings are pleasing. Some never delight.
Some show worth of seizing.
Some never excite.
Some feelings are dancing. Some never gyrate.
Some show worth of chancing.
Some never equate.
