Miss Solar In A Short Dress - Poem by Roderick Wilkes

Much was concealed,
giving emphasis to charms revealed.
The motif was the knees,
stolen from a Grecian frieze.
They were carved by the hand of a master
who was threatened with disaster
if he failed perfection.
It was by a king's direction.
They were set in the firmness of youth
to defy anatomical truth,
then given the female spark to magnetize-
to attract and hold all manly eyes.
