Donna Summer (1948 - 2012)
Still the spinning disco-balls and bring up All the Lights.
Donna Summer, voice behind so many Boogie Nights,
Died at only 63 - that's much too young an age -
Joined the growing list of those who've exited the stage.
People who I danced to in a, mostly, misspent youth.
WoMan in the Mirror's getting longer in the tooth.
If I tried those dance moves now, I'd need to use a crutch.
Working Hard for Money so I haven't danced in years;
Don't play disco here at home - my hard-rock husband sneers.
But, I Loved to Love You Baby, back when I got down.
Thank you for the music of my wild nights on the town.
