The Heart: A poem by Sr. Barbara Sudol, CSFN

February 14, 2020

As we celebrate St. Valentine’s Day, we offer you this poem from our Sr. Barbara Sudol. May your heart, too, keep dancing to a waltz rhythm.



The Heart

The heart beats
In ¾ time
according to Andre Rieu.
The heart dances
to a waltz rhythm,
in lighthearted circling.
time dissolves
into one-two-three,
one-two-three steps.

Look at me—I’m dancing!

If life could only be
so free. Just keep beating,
heart, and,
Keep dancing.
