Starting Young

Little pink girls lined up in a row
Tight buns adorned with a bow
Graceful arms sweeping at the sides
Lady like movements and bodies that glide.
Little pink girls that people adore
Smiling sweetly and dancing on the floor
Perfecting form, stance, and walks
Princesses in actions and in talks
Little pink girls dreaming of tomorrow
Oblivious to hardships and sorrows
All they want is to reach the age
Of applause, recognition, and flowers onstage
This post was originally posted in Tea Talks last April 9, 2013 for NaPoWriMo Challenge.  I was inspired by watching my little girl in her ballet class and anticipating the day of her recital.
