A Woman Gently Stirs - Poem by Laurie hill

Twilight, just before the dawn,
shows pale your skin, against my touch.
A girl before this night was born,
a girl who had to give so much.
And now a woman gently stirs,
who smiles soft, in slumbered bliss,
When moved to yield, her treasure pure,
Her breath was held, within a kiss

    Reads with a beautiful rhythm and natural pauses. Suspenseful and full of imagery and sounds that create the special unfolding of this treasure. Like this line:
    'who smiles soft, in slumbered bliss, ' - I think all the s sounds throughout the poem adds a certain flavor and hush to the scene.
