An Understudy to Her Beauty……

Nature stood
when She entered the Room….

Not even the Grayness
and Wind Rippled puddles
Could diminish Her Majesty
The cold shiver
That had harried me Through
the morning
tucked tail and fled the
moment my Eyes found Her
The Storm Seemed to Love Her
As much as I
The Rain danced and Played in Her Hair
and Swept its watery Arms
around Her waist
enraptured by its chance to
Woo Her through this Minuet
A Raindrop Hung from the Hair
in front of Her eyes
It kissed Her nose
as it fell to Her Face
On its way to Her Beautiful Lips
But the kiss was not returned
A slight blush and a turn of the Cheek
Came a playful sigh of frustration
to meet the frigid breeze that
Flushed Her soft features and
watered Her eyes
As well as Mine
To see such Grace
from my Humble Box seat
and My privilege
To watch Her exit
From this Stage

Where Nature is an Understudy
to Her Beauty

    Your keen care for detail is glorious. It makes the poem stand on a class of its own together with the beauty of the muse.
