Dance Poem by Anusha Subramanian

Dance

Rating: 4.6


Everybody over here,
Are wearing their pants,
Moving their hands,
To the beats of the band.

Everybody turned around,
Folding their hands,
Jumping over cans,
And they gained their fans.

Everybody moved their legs,
Stretching their pants,
As per their plans,
And they won the audience’s glance.

Then, one by one came forward,
Taking their chance,
To show how they dance,
To the chief guests sitting in the stands.

At the end, they were rewarded with,
Applause from the stands,
Greetings from their fans,
In this country called France.

hey anusha...seems you like experimenting with rhyme...nd its a great attempt too...as far as da grammar goes...wel i juz hv 1 thing to say, dat ur poem runs in both past and present tense at da same time! ! while poetry is only about experimenting with language, sometimes different tenses can create quite a rigamarolle in the readers mind...on a lighter note, i think u have a very vivid thought process which is rely good to see!

Poem sends a message of modern culture. As for grammer, I'm not the one to ask about that. To me word flow, feelings and meaning are the thing of poetry. But, keep writing

Anusha, you did the dance well with its full rhythm and pleasants... while it concludes with the fantastic rhyme FRANCE, it gets its full spirit. thanks for sharing/salu
