Sunlight Tapping

Ripple Poetry

For Fred Astaire and Paul Junior

A shadow of thought
a reflection of myth
dancing on the lawn
hand in hand.

A waltz of creation
a romance of words
sunlight’s a tapping
for a hero of dance.

A top hat and cane
a reflection of steps
a heel toe, a heel toe
a rhythm of hope.

A boy and a medal
a cowboy whose black
a boy and a hero
a heel toe, a heel toe.

A memory of movement
a wheelchair that’s left
sunlight’s a tapping
for a hero of dance.

(c) June Perkins, From Shadow Puppets, p. 15
