A Young Jewel - Poem by Tess Rockenstire

Sweet vine around her neck
Garland of beautiful bloom of roses
Beads adorned her black hair.
Lipstick of a rose’ pink petal
That compliment her honeydew skin.
Youthful beauty,
Catalyst of arrival of an era.
A girl will become a woman
A world of change is coming
To a young maiden,
And soon someone
Will capture her inner beauty.
Glistening smile,
A tyrant ego
A budding writer at thirteen years old.
A mind beyond her years.
She’s my daughter,
The future of new Rockenstire.
Books are her friends,
Words are her delicacy
Brainstorming her wild mind,
An artist in her own way.
And one day she will be somebody.

    Oh Tess this is such a lovely tribute to your daughter, you must be so proud of her. If words are her delicacy as you so beautifully put it, she will surely have a good future because words say so very much and can cleanse us in the usage from so many hurts.....My best wishes to you both. from Fay in Cornwall U.K. (Report) Reply
