my friend and i

thrill to quadrille

in beginning scene

of Tchaikovsky’s

beloved Nutcracker

when professional

ballet company

dazzles our rural

community and

invites local youth

to dance dreams staged

as mice and soldiers,

angels, snowflakes,

candy canes or


and we have tickets!!

    Every year there is a production of it in Seattle, but I have never attended it; as you describe it–it must be a joyous entertainment. I will have to put it on my bucket list.
