when I consider them all,
in a great, long, fluid line,
stretching out over the years,
they all, each one, really have
taught me a lot;

some, intentionally, and some
just by having been part of that
eventual chorus line:
never cast as a high-kicking group,
but each entering
individually, becoming
part of my
limited engagement,
and giving performances
that sometimes brought the crowd to its feet,
and othertimes brought the house down;

some of them
I loved more than others,
and still others,
I loved better than some;

and now, although I can bring most
into the white spotlight,
for a final bow,
mostly they all
just blend together
except for you.
