Ice Skating

by twinklepoems

St. Lidwina is skating's patron saint,
that was in 1498.
St. Lidwina tried and fell on his tush.
Seems that skating wasn't that cush'.

Michelle Kwan
was a skating phenom.
She won Olympic gold
with her grace, form and charm.

Torvill and Dean
were the ice dance queen and king.
Their dance to "Scheherazade"
was a beautiful, ice dream.

Tonya and Nancy
the gutter girl and the fancy
Both were skaters divine,
did Tonya do the crime?

First skate you have to get a grip!
You'll slip, you'll slide, you'll even trip.
Eventually, you'll find your balance.
Your first few times may be a challenge.

Soon you will learn how to glide,
then across the ice you will fly.
Skating is fun, there is no doubt.
You can skate indoors or out.
