Poetry Friday: Earth Your Dancing Place by May Swenson

June 2nd, 2017 (06:00 am)
awake

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Heartbeat by David Cook

Enter each day
as upon a stage
lighted and waiting
for your step
Crave upward as flame
have keenness in the nostril
Give your eyes
to agony or rapture

Take earth for your own large room
and the floor of the earth
carpeted with sunlight
and hung round with silver wind
for your dancing place

- selected lines from Earth Your Dancing Place by May Swenson
