The Lovely Lady (poem)

Updated on February 27, 2016

A lovely lady person all alone

This stranger among strangers in the street

Who hide their secrets from the ones they greet

Was polishing a secret of her own


And as the world continued not to care

The lady nightly strained to hone her skill

A lifestyle which would often leave her ill

And even worse was no one there to share


One day the eyes of world was opened wide

By something it was not prepared to see

All other wonders were then set aside

This is the way we all should yearn to be


New books replace the old ones on the shelf

And strangers teach of things they do not know

One person sits and watches the whole show

The lovely lady living by herself
