The Poetess

Mutual feelings between her and her words—

They could not find life without her

Nor could she live without them.

 

In a kingdom that tended to listen

She looked down at her visible hands

And so

The people followed.

 

They esteem her with respect

Because her mind-flight stirs

The white children and their raven writers.

 

By believing in her own verse

She knows she is a queen and a priestess

Born to bring about hope

In an eternal concord of faces.
