Girl with the Soft Brown Eyes

Girl with the
Soft Brown Eyes

imageThin Girl
with soft brown
eyes
your
smile
and eyes
are telling me
a tender story,
in amongst
the pewter
plates that
you so
earnestly sell.
Ebony hair
elegantly pulled
back and pinned
just so,
you remind me
of another girl
barefoot,
tending flock
in parched brush
of eastern hills
and
of all those
girls so many
centuries ago
with eyes
and smile
as pure
as yours.
