    Love it! Karena They are a whole lot better than some dancers you see around

    Dance is like glitter, it not only colours your life, it makes you sparkle, you find it everywhere and in everything and it's near impossible to get rid of. (unknown)

    Default December 02

    at the dancing robots. Posting a little early because I don't know if I'll have time tomorrow.

    I'm not really a poetry person, nor religious, but I'm always reminded of this poem of my beloved Dorothy Parker around this time, so I thought I'd share for the 2nd of December. Hope you like it as much as I do.

    December 02

    Prayer for a new mother

    The things she knew, let her forget again -
    The voices in the sky, the fear, the cold,
    The gaping shepherds, and the queer old men
    Piling their clumsy gifts of foreign gold.

    Let her have laughter with her little one;
    Teach her the endless, tuneless songs to sing;
    Grant her the right to whisper to her son
    The foolish names one dare not call a king

    Keep from her dreams the rumble of a crowd,
    The smell of rough-cut wood, the trail of red,
    The thick and chilly whiteness of the shroud,
    That wraps the strange new body of the dead.

    Ah, let her go, kind Lord, where mothers go
    And boast his pretty words and ways, and plan
    The proud and happy years that they shall know
    Together, when her son is grown a man.

    Dorothy Parker, from her 'Complete Poems'

    Thank you Zurah, Beautiful!

    PS: Just a thought everyone, can a title be added to each day's post i.e. Ist/2nd/3rd day of Christmas etc so we know where we are

    Aniseteph if you want to help keep it up, swing on over the other very similarly titled thread. There are people with duplicates who will be more than happy to give you a date

    Lovely poem Zurah Reminds me of (in a slightly indirect way) Carol Ann Duffy's World's Wife collection. I remember Queen Herod makes me cry.

    And yes dates of titles, great idea. Can't do it for mine as first post though.
