Thoroughly poetic Thursday #89

    Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 

at Two Spoiled Cats

Today's photo prompt is

At age five she was our tiny dancer.
She took tap, jazz and ballet
Her wonderful teacher would say
First position, second position 
knees bent, "pliés and push the floor away"  *.

She twirled she jumped and she pranced.

She squealed with glee when she learned 
she would be a Christmas mouse in the recital.
The costume was an adorable head band with mouse ears,
 light gray leotard with a very long
mouse tail that was quite bouncy, pink tights and ballet slippers. 
 As she practiced at home, she sang lines from the music'
"Scurry Scurry little mousey". 
When the girls scurried, they had to put their hands up to the chin and run on their toes. 
My mind's eye can still see my little mousey scurrying

*this was the term the teacher used for 4 and 5 year old classes when she wanted the to slightly jump up.

I have a darling picture of the 4 and 5 year old class in their costumes but I cannot find it.  So I'll leave you with this....
