Treasure Island

Miroslava Odalovic

(Montenegro)

Dance


dance the river is there to rise
dance touch me and close your eyes
dance the winds will touch your feet
just dance and dance feel the beat

dance the river will find its mouth
dance east and west north and south
dance the river will find my lips
dance the poles to move my hips

dance the bees are dancing hives
dance the trees are swaying lives
dance the waves are breaking through
dance the sides for me and you

dance the birds are dancing flights
dance the stars are dancing nights
dance the currents dancing veins
dance in soils dancing grains

dance the last atom cutting a knot
just dance and dance until you cannot

    Miroslava, I think, has used the word dance, in the sense of enjoyment. This poem is telling, every thing that is seen is enjoying the short life and we should also enjoy our lives. These thoughts are not new, remember the following lines: -
    Laugh and be merry,
    Remember better the world with a song.
    I don't know why Dea Dear took it so much otherwise. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
