For A Dancer - Poem by jerry hughes

Sad little face
Sad wide eyes
the nymph of you
belies your womanhood.

Ah, that I could by magic means
flower that within you unfulfilled -

But I am just a poet
writing words
released to air
like fledgling birds.

The strong survive
The weaklings die
Sad little face
Sad wide eyes.

    and i'm slowly, but surely—

    to every possible situation. ....(this touched my spirit, keep on, sjg) (Report) Reply
