The jump

Red dress - Marta CzokShe bows on herself,
Collecting into her arms
Both knees and concentration.

With her head firmly set,
On everything she moves her glance
With infinite attention.

Then behind her back she throws her hands
And in a jump springs above
Without any hesitation.

At imitating the aeroplanes
For a second only she succeeds
Then lands with endless satisfaction.
