Beauty Gentle

A Poem By Elizabeth // 10/16/2009

 

A shadow cast
on her laughing face
The brim of satin
tilted over her brow
Lovely seated
her hat aloft
 
The feathers wafting
in breezes of day
Upon the brim
so nobly set
Her gloved hand
firmly grasping
 
The trailing lilac
her skirt elegant
Pricked with white
the hem sliding
Around the waist
sits stately black
 
Sleeves neatly sewn
hang at wrists length
Skillfully stitched
small floral patterns
Abide among
singing birds flown
 
Her steps are regal
propriety guided them
Her bearing flawless
head held gaily
Her words soft
politely frugal
 
There she walked
sailing graceful
There she passed
gingerly gleeful
On she floated
with beauty gentle
