Dance Anyway

Dance, then, wherever you may be; 
And I'll lead you all in the dance said he.
Sydney Carter

Dance Anyway
By Elece Hollis

Little flower in the grass
With leaves like hearts,
Fairies of February
Your tiny green buds 
Pop open white then 
Unfold to show pink
And I walk past.
You wave at passersby
But no one sees. You 
Are too plain––too small
The world takes no note;
You are no bright red tulip
No splendid rose; but dance 
In the chill breeze you will
And sing of spring coming!
