    Poem Commentary

    I was actually thinking of a book i once read about a boy who was watching a priestess while walking through the market...

    Priestess

    There is a
    grace in her
    when she dances
    for the gods...
    The way her
    footsteps are
    as light
    as rain,
    in time with
    the thundering drums...
    Her slender hips sway
    to the beat
    her eyes closing,
    lost
    in her dance...
    Her bare legs,
    strong and sure
    with each step,
    put the crowd
    in the trance...
    Her smile
    hidden
    beneath her veil,
    white,
    like her gown....
    All she hears
    is the flutes,
    never noticing
    the cheers of the crowd...

    Cheers for the Dancing Priestess...

    I like this one, she's lost in her praise and doesn't even bother with the crowd's pleasure. A true priestess at heart :) Nicely done!

    oh oh! so your saying you didnt like the beginning??? lol jking. thanks :)

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
