Line dancing

Line dancing

“As the Wind, and as the Wind,
In a corner of the way,
Goes stepping, stands twirling,
Invisibly, comes whirling,
Bows before, and skips behind,
In a grave, an endless play —

So my Heart, and so my Heart,
Following where your feet have gone,
Stirs dust of old dreams there;
He turns a toe; he gleams there,
Treading you a dance apart.
But you see not. You pass on.” 

(R. Brooke in The Dance)
Grand-Rechain (B)

Clotheslines in the wind

Clothes in the wind

“Far away where the soft winds blow
Far away from it all
There is a place you go
Where teardrops fall.”

(Bob Dylan in Where teardrops fall)
Liège-Grivegnée (B)

Cold feet

“When Wintertime comes
With its snow and sleet
And me with hunger
And cold feet
Who says “Here’s two bits, go and eat”?

(Johnny Cash in Nobody)
Liège (B)

I have lost my feet

"Here is thy footstool and there rest thy feet
where live the poorest, and lowliest, and lost."

(R. Tagore in Here is thy footstool)

Work accomplished

A washing hangs upon the line, 
but it's not mine. 
None of the things that I can see 
belong to me.
The neighbors got a radio with an aerial; 
we got a little portable. 
They got a lot of closet space; 
we got a suitcase.

(E. Bishop in Songs for a Colored Singer)
