An Elf of Beauty's Best Defiance
I knew when I was just a Thought a poem
Might come of me, a Fragrant hint of Glee,
A Magic Smile of Radiant Hues
Inspires me to spin the Wheels Green
of language and its ending sounds, a Glove
that sheds from its own skin, A Hand to Write
even when it’s Clunky or lacks A lot,
it’s still a Poem, a Vintage Form of Love
that drives the Car of Verse’s Elegance,
truth, detail, filigree and function.
And like a medieval Synechdoche
For a Female Knight of Chivalry
Best represented by her Script, I signed.
