2058



dancers in the street
paved in feather fantasy
string beads of sunshine

dancers in the street
wear zealous smiles to
rhythm of the beat

dancers in the street
approve the carnival
bacchanal days

dancers in the street
mesh and weave a fabric of
colour with sway

dancers in the street
grinding stones of fear and darkness
imbibe gift of sun

I love "Dancers in the Street". And thanks for telling me about the kiskadee. I had not heard of one and looked it up (you KNOW I had to!..love birds) It is really pretty with its cute little bandit mask. I even went to McCauley to listen to its call. Sounds like it is saying "pretty pretty". Have a great day Gillena.
