Pure African Beauty: Black As Soil

Creature of perfection
Hidden in a complexion
Undefined by man's standard
Yet a beauty to behold

Made by the black soil
Yet shines like chinaware
Each curve proves a perfection
Only done by the lord of mastery

Pure African beauty
Created by coal, yet soft as foam.
Pure African beauty
Made by odds, yet stood through all

They say black is beautiful
I think black is bountifully blessed
With royal beauties dressed
In ancient muds

    Just like the negritude movement that over praised african and black beauty, your poem is one of them, emdowed africa with description that is beyound comparable with any other beauty, nice work.
