Ice Skating

by dejohnsrld (Debbie)

Ice Skating
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
An oval of smooth ice
Skater in sequined dress
Gracefully covers rink
Skates stroke ice with success

Footwork, jumps, spins impress
Practice makes perfection
Skates flow with gentle grace
Sequins sparkle in lights

Music and feet keep pace
Every move, motion
Glowing sequins of pink
Practice makes ambition

An oval of smooth ice
Staying calm, saving place
Many years of training
Puts smile on winner's face
