She enamored music, poetry and literature
Garnished herself of Raphael, Titan and Michelangelo’s painting,
Heritage denied her all political rights to live independently
though, she never let her down by bereaved playing dancing and singing!
She was the Renaissance woman strong and astute
she would enable all to live together in “tranquility and virtue”
Oddly given her renown as a brilliant conversationalist
She sung and made the night-bird in mute!
Her hair was beautiful with loose curls twisted chignon,
Subtle allure, she worn with a draped Grecian gown.
Her make up was one shade lighter than her skin
smeared red rouge and lipstick fairly thin,
gentle in her voice and elegant manner
Portrayed herself refined at her own grin!
She celebrated development and intellectual reform
Crushing on Shakespeare, Marlowe, Sidney, Ben Jonson, John Donne, and John Milton.
Stands foremost among the extravagant, fastidious lovers of the beautiful of all artform!
left no Nobel men in her town unturned,
Illuminating scholarship besides her charm, missal and her talk, they yearned!
striking a note of natural passion, very rare in her day
enjoy the quietness of God’s place and sit alone to pray!
She can mix the knowledge, considered disparate spheres into a new whole
She was multi-dimensional, knitting , greeting, painting and self control,
Where is the immortal Renaissance woman
In the midst of prodigious soul!
