A Pin

Rating: 2.8

Oh, I know a certain lady who is reckoned with the good,
Yet she fills me with more terror than a raging lion would.
The little chills run up and down my spine whene’er we meet,
Though she seems a gentle creature, and she’s very trim and neat.

And she has a thousand virtues and not one acknowledged sin,
But she is the sort of person you could liken to a pin.
And she pricks you and she sticks you in a way that can’t be said.
If you seek for what has hurt you – why, you cannot find the head.

But she fills you with discomfort and exasperating pain.

The imagination genius of Ella never ceases to amaze me, to write something as fantastic and enjoyable as this, by simply using a pin as the catalyst to springboard this poem from one verse to the other. Superb. Simply superb.
