Dance Recital - Poem by Gerry Legister

You may dismiss me during the fast
Moving performances taking place,
Pay more attention to costume and cast
A spell over those sitting in the audience.

If you had sons or daughters in the dance
You would know what this means outside,
Stood behind the crowd to get one chance,
And join forces to cheer the recital inside.

Before the end we congratulate the children,
Because they had done something new
To hear others opinion and had a great time,
Waiting in the auditorium for another review.

The thrill of recitals is filled with pleasure
Around the stage whole families are waiting
Moments to treasure the experience together,
And know recital time is even more amazing.

Voices on screen caught joy in a million pieces,
And there is a finale all entertainers gather in,
A sort of camaraderie hierarchy of artistic faces,
Took their deserved bow for gladly performing.
