“Thank God for tea! What would the world do
How did it exist? I am glad I was not born
—Reverend Sydney Smith
The Exhilaration of the Dance
by Kelly F. Barr
Whenever I hear music with a good beat
I cannot help but tap my feet.
My leg may bounce with my toe’s tap
And my hands may even begin to clap.
I cannot help myself as music fills the air;
I have to get up out of my chair.
My heart lightens as I take the chance
And my lips smile as I begin to dance.
No matter the type of dance I do
In bare feet, stockings, or shoes;
My worries and troubles flee
As my spirit is set free!
