Sonnet 400

Come dance with me, Selena dance with me
And we will all our love the world here prove,
With heartfelt sighs and foot light liberty
As with our spirits may our bodies move.
So let me swing you high and dip you low
Then draw you close to whisper in your ear
And whirl you ‘round as arm in arm we go
Now spire you up to show we have no fear.
Let’s spin away the night and moon and stars,
Cicada songs with tunes of nightingales
Shall be our simple homespun orchestras
Until the eastern skies begin to pale;
And love soft ever as the velvet night,
So fade as one into the morning light.
