Quadrille: Cue The Ball




cue a ball
let your smile raise an arm
we dance

chase the ball’s natural arc
we prance

so much
a simple game we enjoy
a glance
to let you know

I will keep hold
of the prize
before you

With love to you all from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

  1. Oh! I LOVE this! My sweet (terrier/chihuahua mix) pup LOVES to play ball. We buy the smallest ones, so she can get two in her mouth at once. She can sort of “throw” one out of her mouth while running for another, all without dropping the other of the two. It’s quite a spectacle. Love this piece, love those furry babies of yours, always.
