The Allure

The Allure

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers



The Allure




The blossoms of April

applauded the swan-like beauty

of her Hepburn neck,

for sunlight snared the gait of her walk

and every man breathed an audible sigh,

knowing spring was the allure

of fragrance she wore.

Such a vivid image for me... I have always thought Audrey was the epitome of elegance and beauty... she was perpetual spring in the guise of a princess, or any other character she chose to play. I did a project for an architectural studio once, creating her image as a large poster out of one inch square pieces of paper drawn in different shades of gray. Alas it was lost in a fire, but I have certainly sighed, more than once, at her presence on my television screen... perpetual images of an icon so rare and beautiful.

Thanks for reminding me of her today! Your writing here is as elegant as she was... just the precise number of words to express your meaning. It amazes me how you do it piece after piece.

"Spring was the allure... of fragrance she wore." Bunches of imagery you do portray in few words... in few lines. Liked the usage of your word "Hepburn". It's such a beautiful word even in the shelf of literature that praises the black-&-white time since "beauties of allure" walked the roads / marbles / the oceans & all the shores alongwith the scents / aromas / intense fragrances of beautiful spring. Very beautiful write. This piece of art makes my time. Enjoyed it!

Hello Lynn, thank you so much!
Delightful poetry! Springtime does put a spring in the step of the young and available. The flounce of a skirt has caught many an eye on a spring afternoon. Seductive words here, Kelly. Gorgeous painting to accompany your words. Lydi**

awwww, thanks, Kelly!
Oh dear - Hepburn - moon river - the darling of cinema and all my dreams. She did indeed fill a space like Spring and make the men (and women) sigh. Gone are such leading ladies from Cinema but never from the psyche of popular culture. You did her and Spring such justice with your beautiful words here Kelly. So alluring. Thank you very much for sharing this one.

Oh, yes! The neck I think is a most sensuous part of a woman's body and your poem just elated the description of the most seductive one ever!
Terrific lines!! loved the imagery!

dear Kelly... Spring is sprinkled with
delicate beauty and sensual scents.
Your touch brings color and classic beauty
as we stroll among tender moments.
