Byron’s Brtittle Beauty

Ada-Lovelace-020

she walks in beauty

brittle beauty

that nature made

all that’s best of dark and bright

her gifts are immeasurable

so delicate, determined, devious and light

too short the season

flowering tomorrow—flowered yesterday

effervescent, effusive, expansive

at times

so soft

so calm

and eloquent

a trickle treasure

abhorrent of reason

dangerous to deal with

beware the season

tough, temperamental, treasonous

costly in keeping

one shade more

one ray less

a dark horse racing

radiant, resilient, Rigid

all that’s best of dark and bright

a smile that wins

a heart filled with shadows

and love

a mind at peace (or is it war?) with all

above
