The Children

Labels on the wall directing us
down the hallway and to the left.
For there we will find the children
all dressed in costumes,
waiting patiently to go on stage.

You enter the auditorium
you venture to find a seat,
as near to the front as possible
for then the voices of the children
echo in your head like a symphony.

Lost in their performance
smile glued upon your face
waiting for the moment
the applause will take place.

The children's joyful expressions
abounding from the audiences appreciation.
They have mastered the art
of performing before their parents
and all the others who came
for the pleasure of viewing
young talent in action.

this one made me reminiscent of my young actress days..........the key to a good performance is to keep that childlike excitement. Bravo

Having been on both sides of the curtain, I relate to the full dose of feeling.

You wonder who's more excited and nervous...the child or the parent...I think the parent.. Cute poem!
