The mystery of a city angel

(for: Anita, a belle near Lagos campus)

shyly she smiles
her ever-floating smiles
wrecking the reason
out of the land;
impudence accompanies
her to all the hills –
sitting like an old goddess
of harvest & healing
she looks so calm
this angel of the city –
is she an angel of fertility
or the patron of virgins?
wisdom kicks on the faces
of old humanity;
& now she smiles away
with her heroic deeds
a queen of many misdeeds!

    This is beautiful poetry, Canny. It reminds me of the poetic flow of Sappho's ancient poetry. I think her style influenced men and women alike...despite her reputation. I enjoyed this poem. Lovingly, Dane Ann

    Smile ~ A queen of many mis-deeds -- Why, she sounds like a queen indeed -- Smile -- Wonderfully image filled and beautiful amid its visions backdrops of views to be seen and found...."Excellent Poem Canny"...."Much Love & Warmth," John!:) ~
