The Monarch's Touch (Sonnet)

A Poem by Tamara Beryl Latham

The Monarch's Touch (Sonnet)

Her scepter raised in majesty, she dares
to rule this jeweled star Britannia though
dark eyes of former Kings and current heirs,
gaze down on her from portraits. Does she know

or even care what they may think? You see,
she rides a horse as well as any man,
then dons her crown and welcomes Dukes to tea,
while scrutinizing every battle plan.

Elizabeth! This gown of dignity
that flows, the river Thames reflects her grace;
her confidence. Behind doors privately,
she smiles back at the chamber mirror's face,

then states in perfect English, as she should,
"Elizabeth the Second, you done good."

An exceptional sonnet about a wonderful, dedicate, Monarch of the Crown. Who is friendly, sweet, dedicated and a hard worker for her minions.

my pleasure. Tamara.
She is a constant and has reigned all my life. I have so much admiration for her hard work and dedication to put country first. Duty, duty, duty, the lady has done more than good. She has excelled. Thank you for reminding me what a marvellous Monarch we have Tamara in your fine sonnet.

What a wondrously moving, lifting poem! You create such a beautiful energy in her wisdom, her giftings, her leadership. Your poetic expressions of her wrap us all in her warmth and life.

certainly a long lasting and appreciated Monarch
The Charles thingy will be interesting
I am supposedly one of her royal subjects but am not really into the royalty thing

Well, the economy is good, so who knows?
Still going strong.
Am I right in thinking, she's the longest serving monarch in history.
Victoria would not be amused.
Mind you, Charles must be chapping at the bit.
Do you think she'll hand over the reins?

I doubt she will hand over the reins to Charles, but I may be wrong. Maybe William. :-)
Hey you... you just done good yourself... no.. you did more than good.. Her Majesty would be both touched which is of course still a hanging offense but also chuffed to bits with this fabulous sonnet...Hurrah Tamara and true.... N :)

A beautiful tribute to a very graceful queen. She has handled all the tumult and trials with such grace and dignity. No wonder her subjects adore her. Appreciated so very Tamara!
