Queen of dance

From far they come and watch, to see if they're her match. How they wish for a chance, to sway the queen of dance. In awe they watch her whirl, waltz, strut, skip, twirl and swirl. Moves to chants that sound wild, not for hearts that beat mild. A swan who wants to sail, who longs to tell her tale. Needs a man not a boy, on her quest to spread joy. Yearns for love that feels true, when in storms, pulls her through. A soul who helps her swing. A heart who soothes the sting. Love her to sense her charm, shield her from those who harm. Douse her fire and she'll tame, then bond like a twin flame.
Silent One 6 February 2018 Example for 120 words contest. 6 words per line. All one syllable. 6 syllables per line. 20 lines. 120 words.

Great example, Silent one. Gosh, I hope I did not throw away the list I had composed of my favorite one syllable words when I missed the last contest. Aye Caramba!! This one is sure to fill up fast too!!

I love Dance from my heart. My younger daughter is a passionate dancer, though she works in executive position of a renowned company. Your poem always touches excellence. Blessing.

You used one of my favourite songs of Abbas, to this well written evocative poem of dance,Si. As always you set the bar high, a perfect example. You captured the spirit. I love it, and of course it's a fave.....Maria
