Joy and Dance

In the context of reading this article and a question here, I wrote:

Dance the dance of Joy,

dance the Freedom of your Love.

Dance the dance, no fear be nigh;

dance the dance, and from above

Heaven will its blessings bring. Heaven be thy Star;

dance the dance, infinity

brings the Light – no dark

shall rise again.

 

In you, there is but Freedom.

In you does Love prevail.

In you is precious Freedom;

in you does Love prevail.

Inspired by W. E. Hanley (and Leonard Nimoy)

After retweeting this tweet and reading the previous tweets ( by Leonard Nimoy from W. E. Hanley’s “Invictus”. I tried to let me inspire. It may not be my finest work, but still I feel I should put the verses, that came, here:

I love thee, dear – no fear to be
a truth at all, for once you are
what heaven wants, t h a t is what b e.
For thou art HIS, yes, all around.

A bit later I wrote:

I shall not fear,
but rise anew
to where my sun has gone.

Crystal Angel

When I saw this video, I wrote the following poem (in German, translation follows):

 

Engel aus Kristall,

leuchtest hell und klar und rein.

Kleiner Engel aus Kristall,

führst zur Wahrheit Du uns ein ?

 

Führst uns “nur” ins Liebeslicht,

doch die Liebe ist das Sein.

In dem Sein erkennst Du Dich,

ziehst zur Einheit dann Du ein.

 

(in English:

 

Angel made from purest crystal,

shining bright and clear,

little angel, made of crystal,

do you lead us truthful here ?
