Pride And Prejudice Poem by Rm. Shanmugam Chettiar

Pride And Prejudice

Rating: 5.0

Elizabeth, I fell in love with you,
Without seeing you in person.
Without being born in your days,
With a figure that I carved of you,
Out of manners written in words
By Jane Austin in Pride and Prejudice.
I have cut such a figure of you in my
Like of which no heroine could match
If she were to enact you in a play.

You are the epitome of pride,
The pride without vanity,
The pride without humility either;
The pride with a royal aura
Without any royal blood.
You have had such pride as forbade
You even to reveal your love
To one you were deeply in love with,
And to one who condescended to love
Till he himself laboured to spell.

Elizabeth, I fell in love with you
For your pride, poise and composure.
