The Matriarch
A fairytale tree in the mist,
Standing strong as if with a fist
In contradiction with the glum,
The graceful lines of the Grande Dame.
Her daughters gather around her
An army with strength together,
They follow her lead with aplomb,
The graceful lines of the Grande Dame.
They stand watch even in winter
For others may come to splinter
And cut one from the total sum,
The graceful lines of the Grande Dame.
A fairytale tree in the mist,
The graceful lines of the Grande Dame.

Picture inspired,   Kyrielle Sonnet.

A beautiful visual, Patty...I can see her standing there in the midst of the forest around her...ruling over it with grace.
