Dance 4 U Poem

Posted by Dance4U on October 1, 2013 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

Don’t dance me to the end of love, but dance

me to the place where it resumes as if beginning

anew, each time, with nothing left to chance

except the penalties that come from sinning.

Like Babylonians let me feel you moving,

but let us not, before we go to bed,

recall Egyptians with their books approving

the afterlife they dream up for the dead.

 

While we are dancing, let’s think only of

the here and now, and so together burn

with passion for the life and after-love

that follows us when on one bed we turn,

but when in bed, recalling Babylon

whose waters both our ancestors once drank,

let us remember times that, though bygone,

from memories of lovetimes never shrank.

 

Inspired by Leonard Cohen’s “Dance Mee to the End of Love”:

 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in

Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone

Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon

Show me slowly what I only know the limits of

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on

Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long

We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to the children who are asking to be born

Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn

Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn

Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin

Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in

Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love:lol:8):)


 

Dance, Dance Dance

everywhere,

When I look at the sky,

I see the clouds dance

Into steps of winds

My heart dance when I watch clouds dance!

How it can make me dance?

 

Without any tune or beats,

Its own beats me my heart dance.

Some strange tune it sings in silence and dance!

 

When I see at shore of ocean waves that dance,

Some birds in sky fly and dance,

On the waves boats that to the tune of waves, dance,

 

My mind sing lyricless

music to which it dance!

 

When I walk along the beach,

The headless crown of palm trees with wide open hands dance,

Watching them dance trees start their dance!

 

When I on countryside, green paddy fields dance,

Looking at them, the bird on the branch dance!

 

When walk along, trees with fruits dance,

And to its own rustling music, leaves dance!

 

When I walk in the park,

Plants with flowers dance!

Looking at the graceful dance flowerless dance,

 

When I move on street, hope and hap dance,

Seeing at them even hopeless an hapless to dance!

Smile on faces with hope dance,

Wrinkles on the forehead of hapless dance!

 

When I look at people in them mind dance,

In some happiness dance,

In some sorrowfulness dance,

 

Some I found with desperation dance

In some their laziness dance,

In some saintliness dance,

Most of the time wickedness dance,

And in some other dreams that dance!

 

Success that dance with some,

Distress that in unsuccessful dance,

 

In some hearts mercy that dance

Together with love and kindness dance!

 

Some where cookedness dance,

And some where innocence dance,

 

In every nation either hunger dance,

Or in people's mind anger that dance,

 

Either corruption in corrupt mind dance,

Or those systems on the heart of people dance!

 

Dance, dance, dance everywhere,

It is time for my soulful dance,

If you see somewhere some other type of dance

Just sing it dance

and let no other see the pain in your heart dance

Hide it with that unfailable lips on which smile may dance

Dance, Dance, dance,

Tune your steps with eternal dance!
