Dancing with Miss Helen: Another Last Dance   9/20/12    


If it was our last chance to dance 

it was the best chance to dance, yet again. 

I didn’t have to try; I didn’t have to think;

I didn’t have to do a thing

Except pay attention, follow your lead, and be astonished.


With each part of your body

embodying a different aspect of the rhythm

you exposed the very heart of jazz.

And once again,

                            I got it,

you knew it …   

                                                                and you smiled.
