2010/01/31 Dancing In The Aisles - Poem by Margaret Alice

Watching the shimmering, rose-coloured
dress of the ballerina dancing the Emperor
Waltz in awed fascination, zooming in on
the picture – what if every shiny pearl on
her pink-hued dress

Were one of the shimmering violin notes I
heard in Il Silenzio - no human musician
required, simply the sound made by the
swishing cloud of lace dresses embel-
lished by satin and brocade

I love this idea, visual beauty is always
incomplete until augmented by sound
which indicates the feeling, the eyes
convey too little, sound is needed
to catch the emotion

The sound of André Rieu is keeping me
from sleep, still pondering the delights
he conveys by audience and orches-
tra liberated from form and dancing
in the aisles…
