On Renoir's Two Girls at the Piano
In my living room, my sister Marietta and I practice our piano piece. She is wearing an orange dress, and I am wearing a white one. We have been working on this piece for a very long time. It is called ''Swans On The Lake,'' and it is very pretty. We are going to perform in a piano recital at a friend's house in two weeks, and it is going to be great. It is slow, and sweet, and when I play it I feel that I am a real swan, gliding along on a lake. Our best friend, Lauren, is playing a song called ''The Fox's Den.'' It is a lot lighter and quicker than ''Swans On The Lake.'' It will be very fun to hear all the different pieces that everyone will play. After the recital, we're going to have a party with all kinds of things to do. I can hardly wait for the two weeks to be over and to go to the recital. All our friends will be there, either as the audience or as performers like us. There are going to be some awesome pieces. Marietta and I are going to wash our best dresses for it, and I've already dusted off my pretty black shoes with the silver buckles. Mother is taking us out to get our hair done the morning of the recital, since it is going on at 2:30 in the afternoon. The piano recital is going to go wonderfully.
