Ode to Grace

Spread the love

grace

Finesse marks each line and verse;
A hint of smile upon her face.
So deep into her work immersed;
Dressed in gown of satin and lace.

The elegance of her grace;
Leaves us feeling breathless.
The focal point of distant gaze.
Gathered in a soft embrace;
The time so short and precious.
Clouds shine with morning rays.

  12. Thotpurge says:

    The image of someone writing at a desk, probably with a quill, dressed in satin and lace… versus in pyjamas typing on a decrepit keyboard.. surely one is more graceful… 🙂
