Terpsichore

It’s an old word. It means to delight in dancing.
Why didn’t they just say that?

A lot of today’s poems don’t mean what they say
because a lot of poets don’t say what they mean.

The advice to all writers of truth is “show don’t tell”
not “don’t show and then be all terpsichorean about it.”

–Burl Whitman
