O Singer! O Dancer!
By Amanda Hall
SO wonderful your fancies seem to me
  And rare the revelations that you bring,
I find my hands extended wistfully
  To stroke them as I would a skylark’s wing!
And then I dread the more my dim retreat        5
  Where glories turn to tatters one by one.
Oh, take me where you dance with joyous feet
  Along the silver highway of the sun!
