Dancefloors of Derbyshire

This was the year that I Iost all my flab, Met so many people Ì'm really quite glad That i put on my shoes And took to the floor, Watch out 2020, I'll be back for more! This time last year you were strangers to me, And now i see some of you four times a week! I watch you all dancing, growing and changing Ladies (and gents) you're really amazing. Cares and worries are left at the door As we all move together upon the dance floor. This one loves dance from the Emerald Isle This one is quiet with a beautiful smile. This one plays piano, this one the flute, The short one from Brizzle is really a hoot! This one's cakes are incredibly tasty This one runs like the wind, so hasty! This one loves moving to her favourite songs, This one laughs loudly when she gets a move 'wrong'. This one loves gardening, her fingers so green, This one the most beautiful dancer I've seen. This one our matriarch, forgives all our gaffs, loves her days out and snorts when she laughs. And him at the front, Who brought us together, Who's built a life here, despite all our weather. Who believed I could fly When I struggled to walk If dance were a language, You've taught me to talk. So as this amazing year comes to an end, Gracias para todo to all my new friends :) December 2019
