Ballerina O Marina

Ballet dance,
art lies in resilience.
with feet under grace!
Hold your silence for music in distance
'cause Ballerina O Marina
paves way to the evening stage! !

Rare things under care;
Suit of adhore over;
Shoes from a movie scene;
Hair together than ever;
Weary eyes, tiny nose
to many as I seem!
I'll see Marina
ahead of whoopla around
play with inches of fling
so joy could reach and ditch in air.
'O', in mere, she is on!
Shalls gonna do all now! ! !

Curtain raises;
Her stiff white skirt
puff eyes straight
at her pirouette next;
Shining peny crown
reckons as present
to her pas seule previously!
I shall sprinkle mercy,
for, her pas fragrance
shall vanish with spots of
dark eyes and pot scents
on the crowd around
to the feast of mirth,
to the dancing fealth,
to the words of Ballet music! !

Spins in swifts,
swifts around, around like in whirlwinds;
Twirls and swirls, here and there,
therein, about an axis
herein with poises;
She twirls and swirls in noises of whirlpools;
To her whirl, a thrill in eyes;
To her swirl, a chill in looks;
To her twirl, a drill of claps;
To her spin, hearts spin to bound;
To her swift, thoughts knot around;
Her feet high in air, so keep an eye near,
for she purls with her pointes
spins and swifts,
swirls and twirls,
and whirls like chain of pearls!
As finale: the strings of viola spring
Marina spins again
and autumns;
Curtain downs! !

    As craftsman's craft work, weavers best of woven items, nature's rainbows with its glorious colours, this Poem actually enjoyed by me. I felt that dancing in its perfection is written in poems and footsteps of dancer experienced in rythms and poem is wonderful and great. (Report) Reply
