David

David

A Poem by Marie Harrison
"

A poem about a little girl talking to the statue of David.

"

 

David

David, all others fail to

capture my gaze in the ways

that your physique does.

 

Your rounded muscles

and strong upper thighs

lead my eyes to somewhere

above the thighs,

where what hangs

so blissfully,

is such a wonder

to my young

 girly eyes.

 

Never have I seen

such a mysterious sight,

for it's usually covered

with a loin cloth.

 

You've shed light

on a lot for me today.

 

So glad I made this trip

to Florence, Italy;

it was worth the jet lag

that made my nine year old

eyes sag.

 

Not all of the little girls

back home will believe

what I saw,

when Mom's

back was turned.

Ciao!

Definitely original - hehe.
Not an experience you'd want to share with other 9 year old girls, because they might get the idea to go to Florence to see it for themselves; I don't know that their parents would share in the idea though - lol.

Nicely done. A fresh idea and written as if looking through the young girl's eyes.

btw...It's "Ciao" not "Chao" :P

This was so a breath of fresh air! I can see such thoughts coming from a young girls mind at the site of that famous statue. Not only does it give us a level of realism, but it makes us smile and chuckle at the words of kids. Tis also a constant reminder that kids have minds too!

Great Ink!
