They dined on mince, and slices of quince , Which they ate with a runcible spoon; And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand, They danced by the light of the moon.
He grew, and grew, A star-bright sign of fated empery; And all conspiring omens led him on To lofty purpose and pre-eminence. The mountain eagles, towering in their pride, Stoop'd at his beck and flock'd about his path, Like the small birds by wintry famine tamed; Or with their dusky and expansive wings Shaded and fann'd him as he slept at noon. The lightnings danced before him sportively, And shone innocuous as the pale cold moon In the clear blue of his celestial eye.hartley coleridge
Now we lament one Who danced on a plume of words, Sang with a fountain's panache, Dazzled like slate roofs in sun After rain, was flighty as birds And alone as a mountain ash. The ribald, inspired urchin Leaning over the lip Of his world, as over a rock pool Or a lucky dip, Found everything brilliant and virgin.cecil day lewis
The stag at eve had drunk his fill, Where danced the moon on Monan's rill.
Mary kept the belt of love, and oh, but she was gay!She danced a jig, she sung a song that took my heart away.william allingham
It has always been my temptation to put myself in other people's shoes: even into a horse's shoes as he strains before the heavy dray; into a ballerina's points as she feels age weigh upon her spring; into Cinderella's slippers as she danced till midnight; into the jackboot that kicks; into the Tommy's boots that tramp; into the magic seven-leaguers. With experience of age I have learned to control this habit of sympathy which deforms truth.diana cooper
Glory glory alleluiaI'm the luckiest of femalesFor I've danced with a manWho's danced with a girlWho's danced with the Prince of Wales.Herbert Farjeon
She was our queen, our rose, our star; And then she danced O Heaven, her dancing!winthrop mackworth praed
One only leaf upon the top of a tree - the sole remaining leaf - danced round and round like a rag blown by the wind.dorothy wordsworth
Experience is not a matter of having actually swum the Hellespont, or danced with the dervishes, or slept in a doss-house. It is a matter of sensibility and intuition, of seeing and hearing the significant things, of paying attention at the right moments, of understanding and coordinating. Experience is not what happens to a man; it is what a man does with what happens to him.aldous huxley
They have the time The time or their life I saw a man He danced with his wife In Chicago, my home town.
In Silappadikaram, eleven dances are referred to, which were danced by divinities like Siva, Tirumal ( Vishnu ), Muruga, Kama , Kali , Tirumagal ( Lakshmi ) and Indrani. They depict the destruction of various demons and symbolize the triumph of good over evil. This is evidence enough that dance was a divine art whose theme was the destruction of evil and the purification of the spirit.
When at last the gods triumph once more over evil, the tension breaks, the music stops, and slowly the drum beats cease. Almost unwillingly one wakes up from the reverie, tired and exhauseted, but triumphant as one who has danced with gods.
Your silence most offends me, and to be merry best becomes you; for out of question, you were born in a merry hour. No, sure, my lord, my mother cried; but then there was a star danced, and under that I was born.william shakespeare
Then take me on your knee, mother; And listen, mother of mine. A hundred fairies danced last night, And the harpers they were nine.mary howitt
