Those Marvellous Cossack Dancers - Poem by Francis Duggan

Without doubt Russia's finest how marvellous they can dance
I wish I could dance like them but of that there is no chance
For they are so athletic they jump and swirl around
And when they are performing the cheers for them resound.

One might say the best of Russian with them none to compete
The Cossack dancer in his prime a marvellous athlete
So beautiful to look at and so lively on their feet
For their athleticism, symmetry and balance they would be hard to beat.

Those marvellous Cossack dancers with them none to compare
They turn and swerve and glide around like the swallows of the air
They jump and shout and kick up their heels they never cease to amaze
They surely deserve their renown and are worthy of our praise.

For the marvellous Cossack dancers there is a loud encore
With their amazing performance they have us begging them for more
They do not even seem out of breath so elegant and proud
They bow their heads and before exiting wave to the cheering crowd
