Starched Debutantes

Photographer: Leonhard Foeger

Youth garbed in their finery,

Take tentative dance steps

into adulthood

Uniform lines of the genders,

gloved arms raised in merest touch

males respectfully await

a feminine glide or twirl

White satins and silks fall

To the parquet floor,

a basket weave backdrop

to this formal dance

Black suited, white shirted partners

frame the pictorial

in this coming of age fantasy
