    -------------------------------------------


    When I was a little girl,
    My father used to teach me a little trick.
    “watch me,” he said as he twirled,
    For he was once a ballerina.

    As he whirled- like a beautiful plane,
    Arms stretched out- poised for flight.
    For he was the king of the sky,
    “all you need is a little imagination and might.”

    He bought me shoes- pointed and elegant,
    Ballerina shoes, pretty and pink.
    Around 25 pence, for it was discounted,
    And away I twirled and chased away my woes and blues.

    Joy, freedom, love!
    Was the words I wanted to shout at the world.
    Watch me as I twirl!, as innocent as a dove,
    I was in a sea, for I alone, the exquisite pearl.

    As time stretched and I was left alone,
    I found a stash, hidden beneath the floor.
    A beautiful pair of worn-out shoes,
    Poised and a photograph of an old man who used
    To take me to places, I yearn & wonder.

      I'm having a bit of a time imagining a grown man in a tutu here but overall I like the concept of the poem -- the father/daughter moments... and the reminiscing.

    I lost my dad in June so I can relate to the nostalgic feelings that come with remembrance and missing.

    Good descriptive story-telling.
    Enjoyed!
