First Recital

We have been to a number of our granddaughter’s ballet recitals and we always enjoy them.  The youngest dancers are adorable and really tug at the audience’s heartstrings.

First Recital

Duckling ballerina

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bewildered yellow ducklings

toddling in a row,

are staying close together

not sure where to go.

Teacher stands on tiptoes

watched by widened eyes

as obediently they follow

in their duck disguise.

Bobbing and turning,

arms held  ballet style,

they trail after their instructor

close in single file.

One has stopped to stare

beyond the spotlight sun.

Mom and dad are spellbound,

will their ducking run?

But  it’s time to curtsey;

it’s time to take their bow,

shaking tulled tail feathers

at the audience now.

One behind the other

they skip out of sight,

blowing tiny kisses

to the audience’s delight.
