Poetry Friday: An Australian Girl by Ethel Castilla

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: A Song About California by Hey Ocean!

Her frank, clear eyes bespeak a mind
Old-world traditions fail to bind.
She is not shy
Or bold, but simply self-possessed;
Her independence adds a zest
Unto her speech, her piquant jest,
Her quaint reply.
- from An Australian Girl by Ethel Castilla
