Ballroom: A Poem

Updated on February 24, 2014

Twirling around in a crowded room,

Hearts beating to the rhythm of a tune,

Quick steps and slow steps,

Moving across the floor with grace,

The ladies smile as the gentlemen lead,

Guiding them through the elegant motions,

Both catch their breath at the sight of the other,

There's a sea of people, but all they see is their partner,

In a midnight dance, full of promise.

      Seems from the words of the poem like you appreciate ballroom gowns and graceful, classical music...

      Beautiful rhythm and well-drawn vision of the union of dancers absorbed by the moment.
