A Certain Dignity

She held a certain dignity about her.
Shabby clothes worn with integrity.
Forever searching for the meaning
lost within the scheming of their

Wrinkled and yet evenly adorned.
The smile in her eyes somehow forlorn.
She stood alone among the many
rushing streams of their humanity.

No one noticed when she turned away.
And still, the throngs rushed through her days.
Her incoherent babble, full of wisdom, was ignored.
She breathed the breeze that suffered not
the kingdoms of their gods.

One more note, she entered in the dream.
Loving found in brooks that babbled steam.
Soft, the cushions of the throne
that held the dying queen...
