This lilting piece has a dance-like feeling due to the 3/4 time signature. Additionally, a hazy atmosphere of watching dancers shimmer and spin on stage is created by a repeating left hand pattern. The sense of movement is generated by the melody. The melody repeatedly glides along, pauses on a note, and then begins to move again. Performers must be careful to form an even melodic line without sudden changes in dynamic. Students that enjoy simple, sweet melodies will find satisfaction in this work.
