A Wall Flower – Amy Levy

I lounge in the doorway and languish in vain While Tom, Dick and Harry are dancing with Jane

My spirit rises to the music’s beat;

There is a leaden fiend lurks in my feet!

To move unto your motion,

Love, were sweet.

Somewhere, I think, some other where, not here,

In other ages, on another sphere,

I danced with you, and you with me, my dear.

In perfect motion did our bodies sway,

To perfect music that was heard alway;

Woe’s me, that am so dull of foot to-day!

To move unto your motion, Love, were sweet; My spirit rises to the music’s beat

But, ah, the leaden demon in my feet! ~ A Wall Flower – Amy Levy

By Wisdom Kindness

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
