( This is a poem inspired by the song, “Without you” in my fair lady! Also I love the movie ending better where she goes back to him. Hope you like this )

She looked over at the sheer self possession

And suave insolence of her fair gentleman

Those elegant gestures and brilliant conceit

Though, untrue, she said, “I’ll do without you”

Her heart was light with pleasant victory

As in those taunting hours, he smirked

Yet the fellow would not succumb to admiration

Though untrue, she said, “I’ll do without you”

It was such a magical feeling

To accost her sweetheart, so sourly arrogant

As he sat, thoroughly childishly, befuddled

When she said, “I’ll do without you”

Waltzing around him regally

Making him scoff and spurn at this unseen turn

She let him have a go for his own creation

As she said, ” I’ll do without you”

Sweet spring got a taste of bitterest frosts

When he refused to delight visibly in her fruits

To teach that man, for whom, all, she’d give

She said, defiantly, I’ll do without you

      Voted up and awesome. Superb, superb, SUPERB! You have captured insolence in two people in so few words. And, by the way, keep this photo of you. It does you well.
