I see a lady shuffling her feet to the music. She likes to dance, smiling and enjoying herself. She is Swing Dancing, doing the Jitterbug, in rhythm. She is listening to the horns as they play jazz. One of the selections is, “As the Saints Go Marching In”. She is dancing in the streets of New Orleans, during Mardi Gras. People are watching her and are happy, cheering her on. Her name is Rosie O’Grady. She looks like a “Rosie”. She’s hoping to get some Mardi Gras beads. She’s feeling no pain as she has had too much wine to drink. She will feel it in the morning, but only time will tell. To her it will have been worth it.
As she dances, there are sounds all around her. People are cheering, the band is playing, and her toes are tapping on the sidewalk. The band played on.
She hopes that more people will come and dance with her so they can fully enjoy the music too.
But tomorrow is another day.
