My Queen’s Beauty by Chisom-Nonso Henry Chukwuma

My queen’s beauty
By ChisomNonso Henry Chukwuma
[author’s site]

I owe my queen a tribute to her beauty,
I’ll stand where the ocean ends and profess it,
On the mountain top, I’ll cry and echo it aloud;

You’re a dazzling bright light
Even amidst thick dark smoke,
Your face twinkles and glitters like a star;

Dazzling like a diamond in the sky
Your beauty enchants and ensnares
As you sparkle like a starlet among stars
Shinning forth light of blessedness day and night;

When you mingle with people of all race and class,
Your character mirrors every beauty,
When you sing your soul-lifting songs
Your angelic voice melts the soul
And makes the dead dance in joyful rhythm,

Glowing in the dark like ant-blistering light,
You flourish like the cinnamon of Lebanon,
Hence, I’ll cherish this rare beauty
And extol it all the days of my life.
