What was her name ?

by Keith D Allison

Some say she came here for school
others say she's a builder of bouquet's
not those of the wine glass
but the special arrangement
to delight the eyes

I've heard it said
she has special talents with fabrics and threads
she can take a threadbare chair
like a master painter
make it look brand-new

Some say she's a new star
in the Denver night
I've hear her smile
dances on the mountain breeze
bringing joy and delight to Capitol Hill

Don't know if it's true
I've heard she has sparkles of green
That if she turns on you
you'll be dancing to her flavors of rap

if you are fortunate
know the warmth of her soul
feeling the sparkling glow
which touches her night
you will not have to ask
what was her name

This reads like a song and danced through my head just like one. I loved every word of it.
