Ten Years! Such a Round, Emphatic Number
Music: Un Canadien Errant.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
|Ten years! Such a round, emphatic number!
Each step's an invitation to a dance
Not unlike the foxtrot or the rumba,
Yielding to the rhythms of romance.
Each is one, yet dances as a couple,
A single body joined by love and art,
Rejoicing in the movement, sure and supple,
Singing to the music of the heart.
