A poem by the LATE Renee' Summers..

As a Woman I Speak
By Renee’

Fair as the moon
With a slight touch of sunlight
My magic is unwritten
My caring is unsayable
My loving is forever
For I am woman

I seek no favor
Want no blood
Unrelenting is my course of love
I have my errors
Oh, I have my pride
I do not mix love with pity
Nor hate with scorn
And if you would know me
You will see the woman in me

I speak as a woman
Whose restless heart pounds like endless oceans
I do not dwell within my pity
Nor the pains life brings upon me
I am she
Who is ageless and forever
And ever seeking
Offering my hand to my sisters
As our Mother The Goddess did

I have been woman
For a long time
Sharing with you my smile
And the old magic that a woman’s love can bring
A promise of my heart
For you
For I am woman




I hope she knew how much I loved her too.


oh how this poem tells a story of Renee's gentleness, it as if Lord Byron wrote these words for Renee'. Did he see her??? i wonder....

She Walks in Beauty
Lord Byron

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!
