Dancer

A propos du temps de la vie.

Un poème de Duncan Fraser.

 

Gather therefore the Rose, whilest yet is prime,

For soone comes age.

(Spenser, The Faerie Queene, Book II)

 

What do they know of gravity

these dancers – boys and girls?

They are all lightness and

light,

boundless and

contemptuous of space – it

belongs

to them.

 

What do they know of time,

of its confinements and constraints,

these lightsome boys,

these utterly lithesome girls,

denying gravity

defying space and time?

 

What do they know

that I so wish I knew?

Duncan Fraser, Bishopstone Sussex, England
