Belly Dancer


A BELLY DANCER
Veils of color fill the air,
Beads and coins flash here and there,
Her energy is really fresh,
Drops of sweat decorate her flesh,
Whirling, twirling around she goes,
Zills on her fingers, bells on her toes,
Undulating movements, grinding hips,
Gracefully her back bone slips,
The music fills her very soul,
As she executes a belly roll,
Then shaking, shimmering into the night, '
She captures her audience with true delight,
All her emotions show and enhance,
Her snake like movements, her belly dance,
Dropping to her knees, her head she'll bend
As the music and dance come to an end,
Sweet little dancer you cannot resist,
Sending forth a charming sheiks kiss
......................................... Cambridge Keenan june 1971
and that's how long I have been belly dancing...................grin
