I stand stunned at such natural beauty

Polynesian beautyJOSEPH TAMBURE

I saw her and she saw me
I looked at her a little and she did the same
I stood in shock at her natural beauty
Mouth and eyes wide open, legs so weak
Blank mind, heart beating strong
Knees giving way, sweat pouring like rain
Something strange happening to me

She smiled, teeth white as lightning
Long hair cascading down her back
Short skirt to knees, bracelets glisten
Expensive necklace, jewellery too
Skin smooth and soft as an eel
A natural beauty reserved for the finest
Would I be the one chosen?

Bewitched by her beauty, nothing sensible to say
Paralysed, can't talk and mustn’t touch
She surrounded by an invisible power
To be broken in the right season by the right person
If she ever smiles at me again
Her natural beauty will be carved in my soul
