What's In A Smile : Beauty

He captured her charm Serenity and intelligence image Frequent glances From the canvas then back to her face Asking her not to smile Was like asking her not to breathe. Patience isn’t her best trait ^ What’s in a smile? Beauty And everything! Apparently Such a shame it wasn’t image of a young woman In her prim, The one whom Everyone got to know and love ^ Her strong features, her openness, Transcend the warm of a morning rose bulb, Blooming openly in the spring, ^ He paint the colors of an autumn theme Instead of a warm spring; The shape of her face, The curve of the lips Strong feature, Yet, so inadequate To be future queen

A smile is many things, and yet it is warmth. You have captured then as now. You are aware, the beauty of your poem surpasses cold moments? Thank you for taking time to read "Sad people..." I wish you more joy creating.

Very interesting write, Anne! My favorite lines...Asking her not to smile Was like asking her not to breathe. Patience, isn't my strong point either! I was taken in to the scene of the artist and the model! Thanks for sharing, and our visit to my work!
