Virginity and Other Poems by Loetta Meister The Society November 16, 2012 Poetry By Loetta Meister Virginity Tender petals Tightly curled Make a rosebud Not unfurled Tender hearted Little girl Petals waiting To uncurl Lovely woman Perfect rose Given to the Man she chose Spectrum I’m pink with joy green with envy, I’m blue and sad, my colors many. The spectrum lends my flesh it’s tone, without my colors I’m skin and bone. What wakens then when my heart sees fuchsia, chartreuse or tangerine? Love, compassion, serenity, what pretty colors they must be. Loetta Meister is a poet and grandmother living in Fulton, Missouri. These poems are among the entries for the Society of Classical Poets’ 2012 Poetry Competition.
