'DANZA DE LIBERTAD'
the poem
all copyright Wendy Harford 2005

i am born neath nomadic moon, where spirits lust
and i am king of all i see,
imagining no other world but what I know
ancestral site ancestral foe

too proud
i dance with winged soul

i am born for quest of dreams, where lightning strikes
and thunder seems the drumming of some ancient being
where terra sweeps sculpting every kiss
spilling calling rising falling sky meets horizon in temporal rift
beside you ive stood, beneath you ive carried
fought for you, bled for you, died and was buried

toy of your children, tool of your trade
legends have grown from the grounds where we tarried
yet
symbol of freedom cast out with the spade

smite the invisible, scream at the winds, hearts grow heavy
canary song ends
till Danza de Libertad rises again
