A Dancer’s Shape

Bend Body.

Bend the way of the dancer.

Bend the foot perpendicular to the floor.

Bend and show me I still have it,

Years have fallen far on the other side of youth,

But if I you manage a deep plie`, knees turned outward,

at attention and poised.

I’ll be most grateful.

Sway Body.

Sway to the movement of the song.

Will you draw back the curtain of time?

Slightly enough to see a glimmer of the dance

and welcome briefly the body of my youth.

Victoria Yeary
