           With one leap a young Nigerian boy 
                    obliterates the wretched poverty, the
                    trash, the whole souless scene; with
                    the beauty of his dance he has made
                    it all nothing—banished like an awful

                     How much more the leap and power                     
                     and beauty of prayer: the dance of                     
                     Soul we’ve all been given to delight
                     in and share?
