The Holy Spirit came
saying, for Her beauty
nearly slew me
with longing
and sense of drab disfigurement,
gently, You will live.
Come, dance!
Not i, i said, i’ve two left feet
This dance, said She, is one I made
for just those feet.
And by the hand she led me
stepping in directions
feet like mine would never know
and could not find
were She not near
and in my ear Her voice said
This is the way, this way,
put your feet here,
beloved,
and you will live
and dance with me
eternally.
