The Beautiful Woman


I know that I am a wonder to you
Hailing from someplace unknown
I stand on beaches that seas rush to
With sand on my feet to show

O hail the sky
That measures up to me
And treats me as the beautiful one
A woman am I
Distrusting you see
Of the camouflage that you set at dusk

I stand with colors all pink in shade
And somewhere between it see red
The reflection I create
With the dusk and the grey
I am the beautiful one instead

I stand all alone watched by the sun's glow
And I dance to the tune of a seaside lullaby
I trip and I fall and see the world so small
In my fingertips I grip it all

So dance a lullaby and see how I try
to create a beautiful slide
of the picture of me
and that would be
A beautiful woman at sundown

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
