Dance, Dance, Dance

A body to embrace space and time
To feel and know this structure mine
Movements of thoughts within
Shall I walk, jump, run or spin
Hop, skip, step, lunge, prance
Leap, dance, dance, dance
The chirping of birds I hear
Frolic be this body I cheer
The drums and piano sound
Romp I will upon this ground
Leap about, jump about, spring
What thrill this body does bring
It answers the music in joy
Each limb to be nature's toy
In gladness this body now prays
Dance, dance, dance filled days.
