PureDWTS18 Semi-Finals Guest Poem: “Painting A Portrait Of Dance”

And below is Lois with another one of her fabulous poems….

PAINTING A PORTRAIT OF DANCE

A portrait was framed, splashed with the brilliance of dance
Each Semi-Finals dance framed with beauty at each glance

Each stroke painted with display of determination and desire
Taken into the portrait, our eyes saw each dancer’s inner fire

SETTING UP THE EASELS OF DANCE:

THE ICON IN THE PORTRAIT – L A REID
CO-WRITER – PAUL ANKA

JAMES MASLOW AND PETA MURGATROYD

Simply perfect, simply explosive, simply passionate

Glamorous, golden star, glowing performance
Carefree, committed sense of enthusiastic fun

MACY’S STAR OF DANCE EASEL
ANOTHER GENIUS DEREK HOUGH CREATION

A Variety Show, stylistic, superior, stupendous showcase
Brooms sweeping fancy footwork across the dancing vista

GUEST JUDGE ON THE JUDGES’ EASEL
KENNY ORTEGA

ORTEGA’s commentary the best of the guest judges
Offering constructive commentary of every dance

The portraits were painted, brushstrokes of Week Nine
It is astounding, amazing how the dancers did shine

The finale of Season 18 is next week, oh how can it be
The spectacular conclusion will be a dazzling sight to see!
