Day 3: A song that reminds you of summertime – ‘Chasing Shadows’ by The Sherlocks 

Shadow Dancer 

The forest floor is a ballroom,
and you are the dancer
waltzing with moonlight, pivoting and gliding
through the branches.
The shadows who compete against you step on toes,
and dig their heels into your skin.
You are blistered,
at midnight
you bow gracefully
and leave your number
upon a wooden stump.
You chase the shadows
through the enveloping embrace of darkness,
Until the dawn chorus breaks.
A new dance begins
once more.
