Gliding on the light of Beauty

bagpipes started singing
of her Amazing Grace,
flowers started dancing
the twinkle on her face 

feeble are some steps
but with unflinching pride
she picks up her head
and the lift in her stride 

sweeping past her subjects
the moriahs drift her wake,
the beauty in her heart 
breaks my breast to ache 

with a kaleidoscope for eyes
she sees through to other worlds,
to the mosses of the leaves
and the shells within their pearls 

rocks and anicent relics 
hyroglif this scrolling mind,
in the letters from her heart
a life's mystery is defined 

my Angel from the north
plays on the northern lights,
and I can always smile 
as she reaches dizzying heights 

shining in the stars 
when they turn to light my sky,
is message to my spirit  
to always remember I can fly 

for Ann a true inspiration ...on the occasion of her 70th Birthday ... lol sorry for the confusion

    wow,who might this Ann be? sounds like one amazing lady!! Since you gave her age, I looked back up at stanza two and that one made a lot of sense then. Luv, Andrea

    I am not sure if you are seventy or if Ann is seventy...Enjoyed the beauty of your written work...I am glad that I chose this one to read this morning...I hope that your python doesn't get out of his quarters and be really hungry with all those other animals around..He could fill up very fast...Sara

    What a lovely birthday gift. Your "angel" sounds like a wonderful person who provides you with great inspiration, Jayne. I particuarly love the next to last verse and the description of how this Angel plays on the northern lights. Great work, my friend. Love, Carolyn
