Peripheral Beauty Poem by Hebert Logerie

The train was zooming by,
When I saw her like a veil in the sky…

She was strolling in the street;
She was immaculately neat.
It was like a dream;
I wanted to scream:
Oh! God, Oh! Beauty,
I just peripherally
Saw the most beautiful woman
On earth! She was way gorgeous than an omen,
And prettier than an April bouquet of flowers;
She smiled and laughed like no other creatures.

What a Joy! What a Beauty!
What a treat,
To have mnemonically photographed such a woman,
Who smiled like a Baby,
And who educed a warm dropp of rain
From my right eye,
Which caused my heart to beat
So profusely and to switch side,
And my spleen to quiver,
And my soul to beg and twitter.

Oh! God, this one had no flaws,
No scars, no thorns, and no claws;
No tattoos, no chains, and no rings.
Her hair was her wings;
She swam through the clouds like a proud swan,
Like a mermaid in the deep blue ocean.

    i loved this peice and the part ' like a mermaid in the deep blue sea'
    there is an expression people use 'there's plenty of fish in the sea'
    But, I say why have fish when you can have a mermaid! LOL
    ((May be it was me you saw!)) LOL LOL
    Beautiful peice
