Music Box Dancer!

 

Music Box Dancer!

 

 

One limb anchored

The other extended,

upper, merged into two

she spins, around, twirling

gracefully, head in the air,

going nowhere!

Like the Ballerina

in a music box top

confined to a spring

she cannot even sing

lest someone should

wind her up!

What can she do,

Where shall she go,

Is she content, spinning?

Housing creatures of the air

growing leaves, shedding leaves

Roots demanding the mother lode!

Perhaps one day

she may break away

let down her extended limb

keep her beauty within

stand tall proud..

fully postured..

Or let the extension deform

permanently, leaving no

chance for reform, return

to the composure of her kind

Even the Music box dancer

Has two limbs, as she spins!
