Author's Notes: I wrote this "Septet" today, entitled: "Your Beauty Is," in honor of my wife of over 23 years -- Ingrid. The Septet poetic format consists of a seven-line stanza of varying meter and an AA BB CC rhyming sequence in the first six lines, followed by a final asymmetrical line for special emphasis (set off from the symmetry of the original rhyming sequence). For me, as a poet and writer, "Beauty" and "Love" are both to behold and cherish. Both of these states of being or attributes together constitute a most special feeling and a powerful emotive force in our lives. (Gary Bateman, October 11, 2014) (Rhyme Septet poetic format)
