She wrote…

“Love keeps the cold out better than a cloak.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

She Wrote

A woman sat in her study, her quill in hand

Penning down the stories of a life so grand

The ups and downs of life she did write

Painting a picture that gave insight

She wrote of the laughter and joys of life

The laughter that filled her heart with delight

She wrote of the struggles and heartache too

And the courage to keep pushing through

She wrote of the sorrows and the losses felt

The moments of despair, that had her heart melt

But she also wrote of the love that she found

The moments of bliss, when the stars did abound

She wrote of the hope and strength that grew

The inner courage that was so true

The woman penned her stories with grace

A gift that no one could ever replace

Dalle – Art Nouveau painting of a woman writing.

Take Care.

  1. Is this epic poetry, KL. It tells a story and rhymes at the same time. What did you think you were going to write? Quotes often take me in different directions, but usually better than I would have gone without them. 🙂 Thanks so much for joining in. I always look forward to reading what you write. 🙂
