Ode To A Wonderful Woman
Leenaya Rea, Grade 9, Brisbane School of Distance Education -
Finalist in the 'Write Along 2018' competition
The gurgling rills that cool the vales,
Resplendent jewels in rich men's sales,
The gleaming pearls that line the shoals,
And sacred hymns we saints extol.
Fragrant perfumes, a thousand flowers,
The dewy glebes and verdant shires.
Warbling birds with song so sweet,
The views from foggy mountain peaks.
Foamy waves that break the shore,
And the twinkling star those wise men saw.
Though their beauty we may praise ...
They can't compare to my Grandma Rea.
