"Dance me to the end of Love"

Magpie 205
 
Dream, dream to dance
Dance, dance to dream
of love--
la petite mort,
Death, dream of death--
"'tis a consummation
devoutly to be wished."
So dream long;
Love as long as you can,
And play----
Play to the music;
The music of our mortal coil.
"Dance me to the end of Love.
