When Next We Meet

Your eyes dance
oh yes they do 

you struggle to sit still
as little boys are taught
to mind your manners
to learn your lessons
to say nice things
and don’t be crazy

But I know the cadence in your heart
makes your feet tap and your fingers thrum
your veins pulse
to twirl and twitch
to leap and lunge
to resonate wih rhythms
that soothe primordial urges
of wind whirls and drums
and string waves and voice

When I see you again
I promise I shall dance with you

Yes we shall dance
