Masquerade

Who are you?

I may never know.

Your face is shadowed

By the mask you show.

 

I’ve watched you dance,

Hidden in twirling color.

You humble the music.

You dance with no other.

 

I hear you not

Amongst the laughter.

From you I hear

No meaningless chatter.

 

With no hint of fraught

You hold your own.

In this masquerade

You stand alone.

 

So who are you?

I may never know.

You remain concealed

In a mask’s shadow.
