The Most Beautiful Girl

The most beautiful girl

I have ever seen here

Had fine blonde hair,

Her eyes were warm blue…

Is that even possible?

She had a face

Like a spring morning;

When she smiled,

My heart went weak,

Even tho

She was not smiling

At me.

 

She sat with her sister,

Who was blonde, also, but

Her face was hard as winter earth.

I thought:

You are roommates,

You act like her mother,

You push her around,

You are jealous

Of her particular beauty,

But you guard her,

You resent her,

And, oh yes,

Just to make things difficult,

You love her.

 

I don’t know why

I thought those thoughts.

Then the sister got up,

And the most beautiful girl

I have ever seen here

Got up,

Stuck crutches under her arms,

Smiled at everyone,

And started off,

Moving with astonishing grace,

For someone

With one leg.
