Midnight Dancer (To a Black Dancer in “The Little Savoy”)

482

Wine-maiden
Of the jazz-tuned night
Lips
Sweet as purple dew,
Breast
Like pillows of all sweet dreams,
Who crushed
The grapes of joy
And dripped the juice
On you?
Langston Hughes
Repost of one of my favorites by
Langston Hughes – Hope the Holiday was good.
Peace,
Dance! Whirl! Whirl!

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery
