Two short poems
by Joan Adams Burchell
Round, square, polka or reel give partners laughter and song.
A slow, romantic fox-trot or waltz brings a couple closer ere
Dancing is music, freedom and fun, stepping with feet that are
Couples or groups, moving in time, seem tireless through the night.
Tripping the light fantastic can be done by old or young;
Whether shuffle or hop, togetherness reigns and touches everyone.
Music Here and There
There is music in all of us; I'm
sure you will agree.
I know I feel my heart lift; my toe taps one- two- three.
I sing along with familiar tunes whenever I play a CD;
Wonderful waltzes take me away and elegant dancers I see.
Language is not a factor - it's
the music that touches the heart;
So wherever it is you live in this world, of the music you are
And this is a bond between you and me - the miracle of music we
A little of heaven's angel harps gives an aura signed with a seal.
