Brown-eyed girl full of wonder
On that night, sat behind like the others.
She listened to words fall out
of artists’ mouth like dew drops.
Brown-eyed girl full of curiosity
sat amazed at the far end
listening, admiring, dreaming, inspired
by the crowd’s silence in anticipation for every poet.
Brown-eyed girl full of words inside
sat there awe-struck and all
Yet all I could do for the brown-eyed girl
was write a poem to help her remember.
