dance, my heart

II. 103. naco re mero man, matta hoy


Dance, my heart!  Dance today with joy.

The strains of love fill the days and

     the nights with music, and the

world is listening to its melodies:

Mad with joy, life and death dance to

the rhythm of this music.  The hills

and the sea and the earth dance.

The world of man dances in laughter

and tears.

Why put on the robe of the monk and

live aloof from the world in lonely


Behold! my heart dances in the delight

of a hundred arts; and the

Creator is well pleased.
