Always, Grace

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Grace  (posted by Paul)
“What does the word Grace conjure up for you? How does it manifest in your life? In your writing? How might you weave it into a poem?”


She radiated an aura of grace
long before she wore the crown of princess.
Pure elegance of upswept hair and fair face
in tandem with talent, gained her access

to Hollywood, and adoring fans.
She was silver in every starring role,
and gold in a prince’s heart. He could not stand
to live his royal life without her to enfold.

Transition from movie star to Princess, where
she was not fluid in the language spoken,
was seamless for one who put on no airs,
keeping promises to old friends unbroken.

Aptly named Grace, she exuded the word;
all over the world, her voice was heard.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
