A Shen Yun Review: Upon Seeing Shen Yun The Society November 30, 2016 Performing Arts 3 Comments Upon Seeing Shen Yun By Evan Mantyk How they fly now through the air With such poise and splendid flair With a grace and force unique As if fueled by pure mystique! What’s the tale that they unfold Costumed bright and bravely bold Backdrops grand of landscapes vast From what milieu was this cast? When I leave the brilliant show, I can feel a soft light glows, Lifts my feet each step I go, Carries me upon its flow. What lifts them up lifts me now; Art is real, I don’t know how.
