"When we Dance, the Earth Dances"

                     Tree voices

                   find echo

                and companionship

             such as to rest back

            And continue

             their playing


            These dances

           strip me


         Each breath

     a pilgrimage


                         Dancing feet

                            kiss earth

                              kiss river

                                kiss beauty


                                And she

                             in her wildness
