2.  a) The first lady and gentleman step back from each
other four steps, then come together and swing. The lady then goes right to the second couple and the gentleman turns left to the fourth couple.
b)   The first lady and second couple join hands and the three circle to the left. At the same time the first gentleman and the fourth couple circle three in the same way. And often the caller joins the third couple making another circle of three and dances while he goes on with the call. Any odd person from the side lines joins the third couple of each other set, so that in each set there will be three circles of three each— for a "pokey-nine." After the word pokey-oh they all reverse and circle right.
