For the Paper Doll Gang Form Poetry Contest, a Rispetto.
Behold the lady cloaked in blue
Whose dreamy eyes bespeak a tale
Of passion that bewitches you,
Arises love alike a gale.
The silver ball reflects a light,
A beauty like the starry night.
She warbles dulcet tunes through air,
Creates a charm beyond compare.
