PureDWTS Guest Poems For The Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Finale Shows

Lois is back with not one, but, TWO poems in wrapping up Dancing With The Stars Season 17. She includes a “thank you” for reading her work as well. Enjoy and THANKS LOIS!

A SEASON 17 SHOW-STOPPING FOUR-STAR REVUE!
Four stars dancing for the Mirror Ball Trophy in full view

Rise and Shine dancing stars, it is your time in the sun
A sensational opening number and the show has begun

Three dances were performed to oohs and aahs galore
The much-awaited freestyles burning up the dance floor

The judges chose dances for a rousing, riveting encore
The dancing couples took their best turns once more

Jack and Cheryl, to a jovial, jaunty, jazzical, joyful Jive
Corbin, Karina, Quickstepped a dapper Dixieland vibe

Amber, Derek to Charleston chipper, charming, cheerful
Bill, Emma to Viennese Waltz elegant, exquisite, tearful

The Four Star Review highlighted a shining Samba Relay
A shimmering, star-spangled, spectacular, saucy array

The ballroom was shaking, the rafters quaking from above
Eager anticipation crescendoing for the freestyles we love

Jack and Cheryl spun a top hat and tails, tantalizing tale
A slap-happy, snap-happy, cane-tappy, hearty and hale

Corbin and Karina channeled a Michael Jackson THRILLER
A hanging-in-the-air, smooth as silk, a be-dazzling chiller

Amber and Derek with a Saloon group came on with a bang
Spicy, hand-clappy, feet-snappy, cheers from the crowd rang

Emma and Bill, Indiana Jones or the entertainer with a heart
Flying with theatrical flavor, his shirt playing a comedic part

The ending sadly for Emma and Bill, he graciously took bows
He went out proudly, a gentleman of charisma gave us wows

THE ALL-STAR FINALE will be continued, will be a Part Two
Another poem will be written, my gift from me just for you!

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together.
