SAINT ELLI

(with photograph)

by Gregory Frye

(for my wife)

Saint Elli

when she steps outside

all the flowers turn their

heads to follow

her path.

Saint Elli

when she walks into a room

angel wings of

integrity

sprout from behind her shoulders.

Saint Elli

when she laughs

a baby is born

Saint Elli

when she smiles

and smiles and

smiles

the sun

comes

up.

  1. Greg,

    Nice to see a poem from you. Very beautiful dedication to your woman. You provide a flow and graceful movement in tone of the “Saintly” wife. It provides me with an image of a wholly sacrament of your union with your wife.

    Very nice, indeed!
