Dance Me To The End Of Love

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic 'til I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the end of love beautiful poem, thanks for sharing,10+++
short bit its so meaningful...
Sad to know that this song is actually about the Holocaust. Sang with such sorrow and deep feelings. You are the best, Leonard Cohen!
Dance of the romantic nature, Give me your charms but don't be alarmed, As she comes with her own plans as destiny's flight takes off to another being.
Beautiful first verse. But why stop there? The poem is incomplete. Please update. Oh let me see your beauty when the witnesses are gone Let me feel you moving like they do in Babylon Show me slowly what I only know the limits of Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the wedding now, dance me on and on Dance me very tenderly and dance me very long We're both of us beneath our love, we're both of us above Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the children who are asking to be born Dance me through the curtains that our kisses have outworn Raise a tent of shelter now, though every thread is torn Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in Touch me with your naked hand or touch me with your glove Dance me to the end of love Dance me to the end of love
 Dance me to the end of love
I love how simple and beautiful this is.

Short poem with a great story and thinking behind

My favourite music to my love. Powerful lyrics by a master composer. A beautiful piece of poetry.
A magnanimous love poem! ! !
You're more a philosopher of dance than a poet of dance, although you are both of them by excellence. Your cerebral and controversial love is an awareness in metamorphosis, perfectly enclosed and following its cyclical process.This poem is a piece of art.
A magnificent love poem
AH Leonard, I was wondering when we'd finally meet here....beautiful and seduced as always.
