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.
