She is Girl

Blue eyes radiate
youthful life,
her smile revealing
but a small portion
of the love
she has to give.
When the warming sun
chases away shadows
cast by a lesson
in modesty
her mischievous
soul abounds
in dimples
that could melt
the coldest heart.
Golden locks fall
around childish cheeks
in swirling ringlets
only slightly tamed
by a bonnet stitched
with mother's care.

Lovely:)
"but a small portion

I really like those lines:)

And the "bonnet stitched with mother's care"

So much warmth in your poem.

When I read the title I thought "Girl" by The Beatles, but then as I read the poem through this innocent image reveals itself, very pure poetry in the sense that you are getting to the core of something.

Thanks for the post.
