Lines for Rosie

Firstly, a sister - one who acknowledges
The same Lord.

Secondly, a saintliness, with evidence of
The hidden man of the heart.

Thirdly, the sense that would balance
When I lacked it.

Fourthly, the sincerity that trusted to God,
Not to paint, for beauty.

Fifthly, subjection of a meek
And quiet spirit.

Sixthly, sensitivity to the hearts
And guts of others.

Lastly, such sensuousness as makes,
"The desire of thine eyes".
