Homework Help: analyzing poems

Posted by greeny on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 8:15pm.

Spatial depths of being survive
The birth to death recurrences
Of feet dancing on earth of sand;
Vibrations of the dance survive
The sand; the sand, elect, survives
The dancer. He can find no source
Of magic adequate to bind
The sand upon his feet, his feet
Upon his dance, his dance upon
The diamond body of his being.
By Jean Toomer

I need help understand and analyzing this poem. I'm not quite sure what he is talking about at all? I know that he uses imagery and repetition a lot, are there any other literary devices? Thanks!
