Behold


she hums a tune so joyful 
that all the songbirds hush
her countenance so lovely 
that all the flowers blush

her gown such shimmering glory
it makes the stars grow dim
and all her lambent radiance
she wears because of him

This is a real beauty, well-deserving of its win in Mark T's contest...I especially like the rhythm of the lines---very melodious...And I got to learn what 'lambent' means too. It's a real win-win, as they say these days. You win, and I win too. :) :)

I am so glad you mentioned that word so that I could give her credit for it. Originally I had a footnote giving her credit but then I entered it in a contest and thought I best remove it.
