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.
Sing a Song of Beauty, sing a Song of Glory,
for Christmas, it is here.
Loving, thriving through the lands,
Santa comes, Christ draws near.

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.
Sing the Song of Love,
Dance the Dance of Light.
On November 30th, I will be one of two or three poets giving a public reading of some of their lyrics and giving a short interview in Rosen’s Lyrik-Salon in the medieval city of Esslingen am Neckar. The event will take place in the Old Spinnery. For more information, please see here.
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.
Angel made from purest crystal,
shining bright and clear,
little angel, made of crystal,
do you lead us truthful here ?
Today, I read this poem.
The Freedom of God shall Guide you,
the Freedom of God be your Path.
The Ways of the Saviour shall clear it,
oh long for the Help of that Lass.
