A poet’s promise

 

Femalepoet

 

Should this pen fail me,

Should this papyrus crumble,

I shall tarry not.

My blue blood will on stone write.

I’ll sacrifice to earn light.

  1. That we do……Marta you absolutely have to teach me those belly dancing moved. You are awesome and so graceful at it…..still can’t get over it. I know it is beautiful art when it is still on my mind 20minutes later.
