The Power Of A Woman - Poem by Blessing Ekpe

She is the queen of the new day

Definition of beauty is in her being

Her skin is polish with gracefulness

Eyes as beautiful as doves by a flowing brook

wet lips like lilies in a secret garden

Her things are bronzed and smooth capable to cure a sick man

As a raven is a long wavy hair adoring her shoulder

her steps are majestic in view like the Lebanon mountains

as dazzling as the sun is her smile

Her glance is like the dawn

As intoxicating as strong wine is the fragrant from her armpits

her breast like the fragrance of apples

she is as graceful as a palm tree

She owns the world by the power within her

kings and princes bow and trembling at her shadow

    A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOR EVER - John Keats. Women get their power from the inherent desire of men to please their lovers. A lovely poem well articulated and written with insight to capture the essence of the piece and the poet's conviction. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
