    General Poems


    Slow Dance - by Lynn Schweiger

    Have you ever watched kids
    On a merry-go-round?
    Or listened to the rain
    Slapping on the ground?
    Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
    Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

    You better slow down.
    Don't dance so fast.
    Time is short.
    The music won't last.

    Do you run through each day
    On the fly?
    When you ask
    How are you?
    Do you hear the reply?

    When the day is done
    Do you lie in your bed
    With the next hundred chores
    Running through your head?
    You'd better slow down
    Don't dance so fast.
    Time is short.
    The music won't last.

    Ever told your child,
    We'll do it tomorrow?
    And in your haste,
    Not see his sorrow?

    Ever lost touch,
    Let a good friendship die
    Cause you never had the time
    To call and say hi
    You'd better slow down
    Don't dance so fast.
    Time is short.
    The music won't last.

    When you run so fast to get somewhere
    You miss half the fun of getting there.
    When you worry and worry through your day,
    It is like an unopened gift...
    Thrown away.

    Life is not a race.
    Do take it slower
    Hear the music
    Before the song is over.
