DECOR DE THEATRE: 2. THE PRIMROSE DANCE: TIVOLI; TO MINNIE CUNNINGHAM, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Skirts like the amber petals of a flower
Last Line: She dances at the tivoli.
Subject(s): Dancing & Dancers


Skirts like the amber petals of a flower,
A primrose dancing for delight
In some enchantment of a bower
That rose to wizard music in the night;

A rhythmic flower whose petals pirouette
In delicate circles, fain to follow
The vague aerial minuet,
The mazy dancing of the swallow;

A flower's caprice, a bird's command
Of all the airy ways that lie
In light along the wonder-land,
The wonder-haunted loneliness of sky:

So, in the smoke-polluted place,
Where bird or flower might never be,
With glimmering feet, with flower-like face,
She dances at the Tivoli.
