They Walk in Beauty

She has brown hair although it's so dark it looks black,

black like the night.

Her eyes are chocolate brown but they sparkle with mirth.

Her skin is dark but her cheeks are rosy and her lips are so dark that if she wore nude colouring you would have sworn it was highlighter.

She is one of contradicting characteristics that compliment each other perfectly.

As opposite as night and day and yet one is necessary for the other to shine through.

She is a creature of grace and poise and elegance, never flustered and always with a smile.


She has blond hair although it's so bright it looks golden,

golden like the sun.

Her eyes are ocean blue but they twinkle with wit.

Her skin is pale but her cheeks are rosy and her lips are so red you would have sworn she was wearing lipstick.

She is one of contrasting characteristics that commend each other impeccably.

As opposite as day and night and yet one does not exist without the other.

She is a creature of charm and dignity and eloquence, always **aplomb and never with a frown.


**aplomb - self-confidence or assurance, especially when in a demanding situation.
