Battement
 

beat the band
beat the ground with your legs, your feet

stretched, disengaged, struck
stretched-and-lifted

raise the working
moving
other leg
(with apparent ease)
outstretched, level with hip

an exercise, the movement to the field
sudden, strong, a beat

only this - leg joining that -
the body, else at rest

in one sweeping movement, and then, and then, and then.
