The Dancer

He could dance  he could  fly

He could leap across the sky.

He could grapevine,he could box

He could shimmy like a silver fox.


He was never praised at work or school

Always he was regarded as the fool!

But away from all prying eyes he was cool.

Watch those feet fly he’s a jewel.


So for now he dances alone

But not forever will he be on his own

Some day soon his dream girl will join him in the zone.

    I think it’s interesting that people with such amazing talents are often shunned by traditional society. We need the arts and the people who make them come alive. I’m glad you gave him such a great hope for the future, in spite of the fact that others don’t always understand him. 🙂

      We shall revisit him soon and see what life has dealt him. Yes it is strange why do Artistes have to cope with so much drama, as you say we need them to keep the world spinning. 😉 xx

    What a dancer – that many in school and work ignored – but soon, they’ll pay to watch him dance, I hope 🙂

    So many “fools”, hidden – breaking out.
    As ever, Willow, I love the art you choose.
