"In Beauty's name, while she may live,  Beauty that may not die as long as there are flowers"





Alabaster skin,  as if made of china 

just as fragile 


Hair that flows the way water doth,

away and away effortlessly


Your eyes,  twin oceans

Blue and dangerous 


Lush and fragrant 

you are,  as flowers uncut
