LYRICS: Ivo Pelay
MUSIC: Francisco Canaro

Cual dos gotas de claro rocío
en la noche se besan calladas
cual dos ondas que van impulsadas
a fundirse en la orilla del río.
Como el fuego que envuelve el estío
como nube que abraza otra nube
así son tu cariño y el mío
que se funden en un solo ideal.
Con tu corazón, en mi corazón,
el lucero azul brillará mejor
con tu corazón, en mi corazón,
todo en el jardín hablará de amor;
notas cristalinas llenarán tu oido
y una luz divina nos envolverá
fijaré mis ojos en tus negros ojos
uniré mis labios a tus labios rojos
y mi inspiración volará al cenit
en tu corazón, en mi corazón.
Cual sonoras campanas que funden
sus repiques en una armonía; 
como rayos de sol que confunden 
su fulgor con la gloria del día;
como un son que se liga a otros sones
como sombra que besa a otra sombra
así son nuestros dos corazones,
que se funden en un solo ideal.
Notas cristalinas llenarán tu oido
y una luz divina nos envolverá
fijaré mis ojos en tus negros ojos;
uniré mis labios a tus labios rojos
y mi inspiración volará al cenit
con tu corazón en mi corazón.

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
