The Dance (Everyman Pocket Poets) - Emily Fragos

Quite good generally as these things go, and features two utterly sublime poems I've never seen elsewhere:

Jazz Dancer by Cornelius Eady
and
from Owl Dancing with Fred Astaire by Sherman Alexie

And also 'The God Who Only Knows Four Words' by Hafiz


Every
Child
Has known God,
Not the God of names,
Not the God of don’ts,
Not the God who ever does
Anything weird,
But the God who only knows four words
And keeps repeating them, saying:
“Come dance with Me.”
Come
Dance.
