Chartreuse ballerinas, as light as the air,
explode into limelight, with elegant flair.
Their choreographed movements, an instinct inspired,
by natural selection, of grace and attire.
Their plie’s are perfect, the jete’s inspired,
the pirouettes rendered with fluid desire.
The opening movement, shows classic refinement,
unfolding new veils of hue and enlightenment.
Their dance is resplendent, the arabesques plied,
with masterful passion, divulging their pride.
At the crux of the movement, they open their hearts,
so all can appreciate, the High master’s art.
The finale is wrought, with passive adagios,
with graceful glissades of classic bravado.
The audience is bated, expectation impending,
as the cast bows and withers, with curtain descending.
