(1)
the girl with golden eyes
that betray a goodness not made
of innocence or strategy or fear
but of strength or faith or something...
love, maybe that's what it is, love...

(2)
the girl with beautiful hands
hands comfortable in their own skin
hands committed to their work
hands unafraid of the world
toughened and callused
and no less feminine for it
  no - certainly more
hands shaped like meaning
like touch
hands the color of giving
of love

(3)
the girl who stood up straight and 
looked the Unknown in the face
not unafraid then, but brave
she turned fear into love
she turned death into life
