She, Of The Darkest

She is of the strangest beauty
and the darkest courage,
and when she walks with intent
the earth trembles beneath her feet.

  1. I couldn’t help thinking of these lines from “I’m a Woman” by Koko Taylor:

    “My mama told me the day I was grown
    She says “Sing the blues child, Sing it from now on”.
    I’m a woman, oh yeah
    I’m a woman, I’m a ball of fire
    I’m a woman, I can make love to a crocodile
    I’m a woman, I can sing the blues
    I’m a woman, I can change old to new
    Spell w o uma n
    Oh yeah
    That means I’m grown
    I’m a woman, I’m a rushing wind
    I’m a woman, I can cut stone with a pin
    I’m a woman, I’m a love maker
    I’m a woman, you know I’m an earth shaker”
