Shirley Bassey

Shirley Bassey

A Poem by Geraldine Taylor

Dare to dazzle, iconic diva
Behold an era, enrapture enthral
Silence devour, of vocal power
Renowned rendition �" a rising star
Raise the bar, raise the roof
Glistening shimmer, strike a chord
Stage of a songstress, talent transformed
Driven determined, of diamonds worn
Splendour f-o-r-e-v-e-r, glamorous gift
Essence emerged, craft crystal clear
Sparkle supreme, showcase and shine
Sensational art form, eminence given
007, pre-eminence proven
Of charm interwoven
Impeccable gem

Author's Note

Geraldine Taylor

Shirley Bassey is a renowned songstress, with flair and appeal, that has captivated audiences worldwide. From humble beginnings, her earlier years would see her sights set for the stage. She took the opportunities to perform her vocal talent locally to small crowds. Yet a later opening of an audition placed her where opportunity could see her. With a manger on board, she could now pursue her dream on a larger scale and reach larger audiences.

She was driven, determined and bold, whilst she also had the crystal clear confidence to take her talent to the stage. Her power ballads have not only stood out, but have stood the test of time. Such pursuits had additionally brought about her role to sing iconic theme songs for James Bond. She possesses charisma and her glamorous style continues to be a phenomenal showcase for 'fashionistas' alike. Her legacy, as like diamonds continues to shine on, with diverse generations equally inspired.
