Little Anna

eer_0796

I frequented a coffee shop a few years ago that had live music on Friday and Saturday evenings. One of the groups who came played and sang with great gusto. Their families often came with them . One of the players had a little four year old daughter with long flowing ringlets who would dance in the middle of the floor as they would play. She held her arms straight out and twirled around to the music. It was one of the sweetest sights I have seen. I wrote this originally as a song as a tribute to Little Anna.

Dance Little Anna

Dance little Anna …sweet Cinderella

Spin and twirl and dance the night away

Close your eyes  …spin and smile

Feel your spirit swirling across the floor

Dance little Anna  … feel the music

Let the rhythm fill your very soul

One day soon you’ll grow up

Then you’ll have to slow up

But, don’t let them steal your spirit away

 

So Dance little Anna …sweet Cinderella

Spin and twirl and dance the night away

Close your eyes …spin and smile

Feel your spirit swirling across the floor

Dance little Anna …lost in the moment

Let your dreams come floating from your mind

I hope that when you grow up

Your dreams will never slow up

Don’t let them steal your spirit away

 

So Dance little Anna …sweet Cinderella

Spin and twirl and dance the night away

Close your eyes …spin and smile

Feel your spirit swirling across the floor

Dance little Anna … feel the music

Let the rhythm fill your very soul

One day soon you’ll grow up

Then you’ll have to slow up

But, don’t let them steal your spirit away
