Poem: Dance of the Harvest by Jessica Cauthon

Poem: Dance of the Harvest

DANCE OF THE HARVEST

Stomp. Pound
feet stampede
dusty desert sands.
Black bodies twirl. Stop.
Clap hands against thigh,
thrust spear toward sky.
Stomp. Stomp
feet on open ground
smack thigh and turn
around ceremonial fire
lights jubilant souls to dance.
Step forward twice,
back one more.
S
tomp. Stomp
feet dance, celebrate
ceremonies of long ago.
Spears raised, shout
“Bring us a good harvest!”
