A Moment Of Grace

She was awkward

Could trip up the stairs

Always dropped things

Everyone just knew it

She was the clumsy one

Then she found her love –


She began a class

She practiced all the time

And in no time

Had a bit of grace to her

The night of her first performance

She was so nervous

She was shaking and afraid

But when the time came

She was a vision on stage

Every leap and twirl a beautiful moment

She still trips up the stairs

And can drop a million things a day

But give her some music and floor space

And she is ungainly no more

Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – ungainly
