The Ballerina

By Maeve Clinger, TIWP Student

she is the pure essence of grace

each step, each twirl, each leap

are flowing with beauty and thought

her face is painted with a sweet, soft smile

of wistfulness and devotion

everything she does

is captivating 

she is satin, and silk, and lace

she is dew, and sun, and raindrops

everything about her 


with sugar and honey

and as you lock eyes with her

she sends a look your way

and the fraction of time that your eyes meet

the rest of the world simply…

falls away.
