A Dancer Is

A dancer is
not afraid
of a crowd
and is not afraid
to be on stage.
She is dancing
with all her heart.
She does not think
if people are saying
bad things. She
practices and practices
until she sees her-
self as a dancer.
She has long hair.
Her voice sounds
like an angel flowing
from Heaven, and
she is very tall.
She is afraid of
messing up, but
she dances from
her heart.

Nikki, 3rd grade
