Dance of the Heart
Around she danced, her hair alight Within the fire, her face so bright And as she flowed, her feet so light Our joy arose throughout the night As lyre played, plucked out a trill It siphoned out our deepest will: To weave with her, our greatest thrill Flowing with her, upon the hill. And so it was, e'er summers' eve Our dreamy wish we all would heave. She'd welcome us at her own leave And by her side we gladly weave.
Llykael Dert-Ethrae is a writer based in York, he is currently working on his first publication. Dance of the Heart is one of three poems sent to me by Llykael, it is from a series of works concerning a character named Willow who features in Llykael’s writing. If you enjoyed this let me know, I will be posting more poems about Willow over the coming weeks. I love the beautiful and magical imagery evoked in Llykael’s words. See you Wednesday for this week’s Connect to Nature creative writing class!
