The Ballet Dancer

A ballet dancer is a swan
Without the beak or feathers
A ballet dancer is the seasons
Without a change in weather
A ballet dancer is a portrait
With a difference to this art
The picture captures feeling
The dancer embraces heart
- Mary O. Fumento, 1981

I hope you enjoy the poem above by Mary Fumento as much as I did. For me, this poem encapsulates the very essence of the ballerina. As many of you know I am a trained ballet dancer - educated and trained at the Royal Academy of Dance, London, England. Am performing this weekend so wish me luck. Happy weekend to one and all!;-)
