Becoming Of Age - Poem by Eoghan Finn

More than young woman
Now, liberal and cunning
Now, blessed and becoming
How you're welcoming
How well age is coming

Along to a tune- were it a plot
In a play- too subtle to stage-
Neither writer nor conductor caught
Your becoming of age.

    I think this is my favourite after my two presents. I love how it sounds, you want to just say it over and over! And I absolutely love the idea that it cannot be caught and it's too subtle to stage it's so well noticed and well put. M x (Report) Reply
