VIDEO: She without arm, he without leg - ballet - Hand in Hand

I could think of no other way to introduce this amazing video than a poem by the master himself.

A Dedication
by James Merrill

Hans, there are moments when the mind
Resolves itself into a pair of brimming eyes, or lips
Parting to drink from the deep spring of a death
That freshness they do not yet need to understand.
These are the moments, if ever, an angel steps
Into the mind, like kings into the dress of a
Poor goatherd, for their acts of charity.
There are moments when speech is but a mouth pressed
Lightly and humbly against the angel's hand.
