Dance me to your beauty
with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
till I'm safely gathered in
Lift me like an olive branch
and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love

Let me see your beauty
when the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving
like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly what I only
know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to a wedding now
dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly and
dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love
we're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children
who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains
that our kisses have outworn
Raise a tent of shelter now
though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty
with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
till I'm gathered safely in
Touch me with your naked hand
touch me with your glove
Dance me to the end of love

Leonard Cohen

This is a lovely book. I'm releasing it to celebrate life. We all owe our lives to love. Cohen and Matisse gorgeously afirm this within these pages. This is also a thank you to boirina, who loves Leonard Cohen's music. boirina designed the lovely mandala bookplates that adorn many of the books I've given to you Dear Reader. Inside the cover, over boirina's mandala of Spring, I've also added a small reproduction of a Marc Chagall bride and groom. Cohen's dance to the end of love chanels this lovely image from Chagall for me as well. Happy Spring! Happy Love! May you be lifted like an olive branch Dear Reader into the dance.

Thanks for all the beauty you have sent my way!

It's managed to get here when I needed it more, because I feel sad and helpless and things like this remind you that life is worth living, with all its ups and downs. But I also feel very happy, because I this week I was told that Leonard Cohen will perform again in Lisbon in July, and I managed to get two tickets on the pre-sale, second row. It'll be awesome, I know. ;)

So... thanks again! I hope you don't mind if this book goes to my PC, at least for the time being.
