[Fig: Dance on the Banks of the Manzanares, Francisco de Goya]
A dance of opposites,
in the midst of an enchanted place.
Jolly carols accompanied by the sound
of mesmerizing guitar notes,
and the taste of the moment
inebriates the lips of a future hope;
strong sentiments hold grips of a broken heart,
amidst an everlasting oneiric state.
