In the dead of winter,
teach them to bob up-and-down,
to wobble from side to side
to protect their roots from the push of icy winds.
Before they wither,
do not let too much ice settle on them.
do not let then become weighted down,
oppressed.
Teach the tender shoots
the faith that spring will come.
Teach them to weave.
Let the dancers on this stage
express themselves,
and see the world not just as cold,
but sparkling and bright.
Teach them the art of dancing,
as surely God is light on his feet.
