La Fille Mal Gardée

La Fille Mal Gardée

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

The Girl Who Needed Watching


La Fille Mal Gardée


This grand pas de deux

moves from entre

to the sultry sensual motion

of our graceful and elaborate adagio;

I, danseur, your virtual barre,

strong enough to support you

with poise and effortless strength.

To lift you featherlike

to the heights of stardom.

But our variations endure

and we are stuck,

solo in turns,

centre stage,

unable to reach

the intense, dramatic coda

that grand musical climax

we both long for.
