A Celtic Face

Hair of ginger and sweet brown sugar,
Skin of alabaster, whiter, smoother
Than steep walls of new-laid plaster,
Brow's pallid glow, a polished marble,
Throat's blush, a white rose pinkening,
Eyes, serene pools of green
Radiant in late afternoon,
Quizzing eyes behind clerky glasses,
Happily skeptical, lambent with knowing,
Piercing gaze that grabs you by the shirt,
Lips tasting fine wines of amusement,
Smiles, blessings, saying live, let live,
Let children play, let them play all day.
