Dance by Henri Matisse

I am Beauty

My body is grace

I take up symmetrical space

None are the same

Let all proclaim

I am the dancer with the greatest frame

I am Sex

My body is piece

I am like the Golden Fleece

With such surprise

In this disguise

I am the dancer with the most eyes

I am Strength

My body gives birth

I am the fabric of the Earth

Humility

Consistency

I am the dancer with the greatest ability

I am Weakness

My body is old

I no longer resemble gold

But my stance: wide

And my glance: pride

I am the dancer they want to hide

I am Ugly

No need to look

Notice the effort undertook

To reach before

I hit the floor

I am the dancer that can go no more
