Spring Dance

Dancer in Green, M. Mair, original painting

Dancer in Green, Margaret Mair, original art

She dances to
The rhythms of nature,
Warming with the sun
Breathing with the wind
Flowing with the clouds
Turning with the earth.
The hopeful heartbeat
Of the dance of life
Moves through her
Stretching body like
Long waves of sunlight;
She feels the warm call
Of soon-coming spring
In soft green days
Still bracketed by
The harsher throb of
Winter’s retreating storms.
In the glow of days
She becomes
A dancer to her dreams
Dancing with ours.

Written by Margaret Mair

  1. I love the movement, dignified grace, and celebratory joy of the portrait, Margaret, and the exquisite imagery of your poetry.
