The Darling of Poetry

Her mind is a cavern of endless abyss
Of chambers of thought and of soft reminisce
She pulls from the lode intellect of a sage
And insight beyond her young tender age

She consumes every aspect of life that she sees
And expresses her thoughts with grace and with ease
Her words tend to dribble so smooth down the page
And you read them in wonder at the mind of a sage

She’s sprightly, amazing, she’s witty and fun
She’s a child of the pisces but equal to none
She’s a pretty New Zealander, poet queen of the isle
She brightens your day with a warm loving smile

She can turn an argument into a hug
Her words seem to magically work like a drug
And everyone listens, there spirits aglow
She’s the “darling of poetry”, the Kamla we know

Happy Birthday, Kamla
February 25

Love ya
Liz

I like this, Liz! I must admit I do not know which poet here is Kamla, as I'm assuming that is her given name and not her pseudonym, but you've written her a delightful birthday poem, and I'm sure she will cherish it.

Thanks for your responses, dear friends

Claire,
Kamla is "Severn", and if you have read her free verse, you will always remember
it. She is a university student and was recently published in a NZ literary magazine.She hasn't been posting as much recently, but if you have a chance, it's worth it to page back and read her poetry.
Thanks for your lovely response.
Liz

Femme - I will be the grand old age of 25 - though I feel at least 40!!! No - that's only 15 years away - 80 perhaps...that's not so scary - HAHAHA!



(Crazy? Of course...actually a nice sedate dinner with my closest friends is the 'crazy' event (no family where I live) - sigh - guess I'll just have to run around stupidly afterwards - screaming at the top of my lungs and climb up powerpoles...yep, that ought to do it...)

I'm going to join the ring of friends to sing the Birthday song
And Liz you underlined it so well
I don't even have to raise my bass
Wonderful

 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Love and hugs,
