Dance Ballerina Dance The Society October 29, 2012 Poetry 2 Comments By A. Michaelle Yarbrough The music of the crescendo plays so sweet As she moves across the floor so gracefully To a soothing gentle blossoming beat Her motion paints pictures of love lost painfully He’s just a prop to accompany in the duet A place of joy and pride stretched arms to catch Her sculpted body soars completes the silhouette His hard body throws her carefully arms stretch With poise she dances a story breath taking Of beauteous mankind imagined in dreams The experience like life in the making She keeps her part with satisfaction well done She dances on a stage for all to see her The dance she was created for to dance A lifetime of work for this one moment’s history Makes everything she gave up worth this one chance A. Michaelle Yarbrough was born in Lansing, Michigan and now lives in North Carolina. She was recently published in the Poetic Bond, and in 2007 was nominated poet of the year by the International Society of Poets. This poem is among the entries for the Society of Classical Poets’ 2012 Poetry Competition.
