The Iridescent Angel By: Elise age 12

My heart beat matches the beat of his wings
Fast like lightning and when a bee stings
Shimmering feathers, like the light in my eye
Gleaming like the sun, blazing in the sky
A beak so finely shaped, it's perfection
No flower will ever face rejection
Radiant colors, rainbow, iridescent
Only one word fits; luminescent
Here I am face to face
In a exquisite garden, an alluring place
With a dazzling beast, so flawless, so pure
You're sure to be awestruck, let's hope there's a cure.
