Langston Hughes

Danse Africaine

The low beating of the tom-toms, The slow beating of the tom-toms, Low … slow Slow … low – Stirs your blood. Dance! A night-veiled girl Whirls softly into a Circle of light. Whirls softly … slowly, Like a wisp of smoke around the fire – And the tom-toms beat, And the tom-toms beat, And the low beating of the tom-toms Stirs your blood.
