in her complex beauty.
Kissed with breathless passion;
by the tepid essence of beautiful and delicious.
Her sturdy elegance no less a snifter…
Inhale these fumes exquisite,
and wake from the dream of comparison.
Beware insurmountable strength, cast upon her by the ages.
For beyond your careless scrutiny;
in her realm of darkness,
quietly she has yielded kings and queens.
She rakes the soil of life with her hands-
polishing pebbles into diamonds.
Her laughing spirit prevails;
needless you acknowledge her irrepressible.
For she is goddess and guardian of her tribe,
evermore to love them.
The puerile royals, of her descendant strain.
Invincible keeper of the blessed Black grail-
The breath of our foundation-
