Moonlight Swim

Sisters dancing joyously naked in the moonlight.
Glistening from the water of the river and the dew.
Whispered silence as someone is approaching.
Listening intently as the footsteps draw ever nearer.

Two young boys hurry past in joyous expectation.
This is their favorite place to go swimming on warm summer nights.
It seems to be a race to strip and jump right in.
Their bodies make a splash as they hit the water hard.

The sisters quietly giggle as they slowly sneak.
To steal the young boys clothing and to try to take a peak.
When they reach the clothing they quickly sneak away.
As someone else had stolen theirs earlier in the day.

Brothers prancing joyously naked in the moonlight.
glistening from the water of the river and the dew.
Smothered silence as someone is approaching.
Listening intently as the footsteps draw ever nearer.
