THE PLAY IS NEVER OVER

You think the play is over,
when the final curtain falls.
And the actors leave in smiles,
after taking curtain calls.
But there's just a touch of magic
in these now empty halls,
And the play is never over,
though the final curtain falls.

Memories will dance forever
upon that magic stage.
And there's the leading lady
who was once society's rage.
In front, the world's musicians
quickly turn a page,
And if you look more carefully,
It's not an empty stage.

I do believe it's Shakespeare,
standing over to the right.
And yonder, why, it's Cyrano,
sword ready for a fight.
Sure, up above, there's Peter Pan,
Frozen in mid-flight.
And look at all the dancers,
twirling in the fading light.

Tell me, is that Gabby,
standing on a desert stage?
Does the poem that she's reading
have tears upon the page?
Surely looks like George and Lennie,
Walking back beyond the sage.
No, the play is never over,
and there is no empty stage.

All the lights are slowing dimming,
so I guess it's time to go.
Though I hear some music playing
a waltz I used to know.
Yet how beautiful that magic stage,
With the curtain closing slow.
Yes, the play is never over,
Ah, hear, "ON WITH THE SHOW!"

EXTRACTED FROM MY EBOOK POETRY OF "PASSION," AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN VERSE.

Loved this read!!!
Your so right, the play is never over....
even though I was left bellowing at my last close!

Wow, Frank. This was so true. As an actress and dancer, I know this more than ever. The stage is always alight with past and present and future performances, because a stage is never lonely. I would've never thought about this as a poem. Very creative!

Warm Love,
