Daily Prompt: Agile

They come out on the stage

Nerves well hidden behind their smile

And when the music starts

Folick, move and dance in time.

Oh agile ones

I used to be jealous

My old frame never did that.

I never did more than a somersault

I never did manage the mat

I wished so much that I could vault

I wished for the fleet-footedness of a cat

Unfortunately nimbleness did not a home to find

And after forty plus a few years,

I find that I do not so much mind.
