African Beauty


African Beauty

A lovely vision in the desert sun,
A stunning flower, in full bloom.
Her life's path has just begun,
To find a dashing groom.

No sooner puberty starts
Her life was destined to part
And body appear the curves
Past view of life will depart

As quick as melted snow
The winds of change will blow
Her course will rapidly change
To womanhood prearrange.
