She's optimistic and sweet.

Gentle yet proud.

But with a staff in hand,

She can thin out a crowd!



She sees the beauty in life

In people and things.

With her for a day.

Kindness is what it brings.



Very smart and thoughtful,

With a poets heart.

The ugliness in her life.

Rips her innocence apart.



Yet with a gleam in her eye,

And a laugh in her throat.

It just give's her more means

To write and quote!



Never misjudge her,

It would be your loss.

The bards' strength is mental.

She'd give you a toss!!
