Poetry Friday: The Dancers by Michael Field

April 3rd, 2009 (08:47 am)

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Without a Trace theme song

I dance and dance! Another faun,
A black one, dances on the lawn.
He moves with me, and when I lift
My heels his feet directly shift:
I can't outdance him though I try;
He dances nimbler than I.
I toss my head, and so does he;
What tricks he dares to play on me!
I touch the ivy in my hair;
Ivy he has and finger there.
The spiteful thing to mock me so!
I will outdance him! Ho, ho, ho!

Love this, especially the last line,

I will outdance him! Ho, ho, ho!
