Born of Gold

By Fiona Rose


Born of gold from the sun was her hair


beautiful as the pink roses her skin was fair


Eyes brighter than the moon, and bluer than the bluest ocean afar


her eyes held such beauty like that of a star


lips a dark scarlet like that of a rose spoke words of devotion to the lover she chose


born of angels tears and God’s grace


she was born an angelic pure beauty dressed


in fine linen and lace
