The Shadow Game

Dancing ’round the fire
Flickering in and out
Before me images transpire
And bring myself to doubt

Strange visions fill the night
They move and grow then die
Causing imaginations to ignite
As physics they belie

What magical illusions
Does my mind create
Drawing false conclusions
Will they soon abate

Mystical apparitions fly
Beyond the amber flame
Projected against darken sky
They play the shadow game
