A New Dance


Forgive me Mother
forgive me Father
But the dance you wrote
and the choreography
You've supplied
is mostly all wrong.

The melody is filled
with too much discord
and the minor key doesn't suit
my dancing feet.

Forgive me now
if I turn my back
on the rhythm of years.

But we
the Lord and I
have improvisations
to write
A score to hear
with jubilation enough to suit
my dancing feet.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
