F.C.P.-A PORTRAIT, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: There is a certain beauty in her face
Last Line: Courage and faith and humble majesty.
THERE is a certain beauty in her face
That holds close kindred with the quiet things
One finds in forests, and a subtle grace
In all her movements as of lifted wings.
A sweet tranquillity dreams in her eyes
That look upon the world as unafraid
And clear as hidden pools reflecting skies.
Her voice speaks music that the winds have played
At midnight through the leaves, and in her smile
Is lit the radiance of a falling star.
When I have watched her for a little while
I see deep in her heart that these things are:
Patience and reverence and loyalty,
Courage and faith and humble majesty.
