To celebrate English Day, last Friday we did a poetry and contemporary dance workshop with some 3ESO and 4ESO students. 2Batxillerat students volunteered and helped us creating our coreographies from the poems we had previously read and analized. We had a great morning reading poems and creating movement, trying to give motion beauty to the poem “When you are old”, by William Butler.
Here you have our result. Hope you enjoy it!
When you are old
by WILLIAM BUTLER YEATS
When you are old and grey and full of sleep,
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.
