An Epic Woman

Updated on January 10, 2012

A Chance Encounter

I Read a line in the epic, "The Aeneid" by the poet Virgil that reminded me of a beautiful woman that I encountered but was afraid to approach, because of her stunning beauty.

'What age so happy brought you to birth ?

How splendid were your parents

In having concieved a being like you."

Here is my poem to her:

She wore her hair up

a lady with a crown

I wish I was with you

when it all comes down

To look at her

that pretty face

Her eyes shine brighter

than the stars in space

Fine, Sweet, and Tender

Who wouldn't love this lass

She is a woman

nothing but class

      thank you for the encouragement,Dreamer and Vix

      My fan base is rising, what can I say

      Hope that you read more of my poetry

      and with the words that I play.

      Women are my inspiration

      so much inner beauty to see

      All the women poets on hubpages

      just fill me with such glee
