Midnight Dancer (To a Black Dancer in “The Little Savoy”)


Wine-maiden

Of the jazz-tuned night

Lips

Sweet as purple dew,

Breast

Like pillows of all sweet dreams,

Who crushed

The grapes of joy

And dripped the juice

On you?

Langston Hughes

Repost of one of my favorites by

Langston Hughes – Hope the Holiday was good.

Peace,


Dance! Whirl! Whirl!
