Amusing




A"muse"ing
Amusing?
Crowds clamour at your gate

Protected
Reflected
Enigmatic portrait

Beguiling
This smiling
For centuries we debate

Compelling
Not telling?
A secret worth the wait.

And the secret is as important - if not more so - than the smile. Great words.

We'll never know the reason for the smile, but you frame the mystery beautifully. Vb

Good to read and even better to listen to.

This is so charming! It's that quirky smile that makes us believe she holds a secret!

I love the scheme you created here, the echoing rhyming and the message. I really enjoyed this.

That's the thing, the secret, what's behind the smile, we are so drawn to things we don't fully understand. Nice take on prompt.

Reflections said...

The secret invites an answer untold.... Nicely done.

Martin H. said...

Nice. But I wonder how much the secret has been enhanced by our appetite for mystery?

Doctor FTSE said...

A very tight poem.

Carrie Burtt said...
