before her eyes

Beauty Lives in Her Eyes

 Beauty lives safely in one place,

 Her eyes are the address,

  So beautiful they are to look at,

 Reminding us of Elizabeth Bennet.

 

Only a few are blessed,

 With eyes so wonderful and sacred,

 A thousand nights will look nothing,

 To spend evoking the beauty that her eyes bring.

 

 Her eyes are the precious well of beauty,
In which I would love to descend for eternity.

 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Elizabeth Bennet is the protagonist in Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice. She is exceedingly beautiful and has "fine eyes”.

POEMS FOR MY BOOK

The
weeping
willow
stands
silently
at the
waters edge.

 

Watching
reflections
reoccuring
over and
over again.

 

Once she
wore
ribbons
in her
hair, a
signature
of youth.

 

Now
leaning
over she
discovers
the remains
of yesterday.

 

Forever
displaying
themselves
before
her eyes
in the waters.
