Milady

Milady said she spoke too softly
diamonds dancing on her tongue
Milady moved her fingers lightly -
from her fingers rubies hung
Milady said 'the moon's entrancing, '
lapis lazuli in her eyes
Milady said she felt like dancing
out into the emerald sky

This is beautiful, an example of effortless rhyme. My only question...in the first line, my mind had to stop for a second to ask, 'Would milady say that she, herself, was speaking too softly, or was she talking about someone else there? ' I can imagine her saying that about herself. I don't know if that second's distraction, for me, is a flaw in the poem, like a tiny flaw in a diamond, or not. Other than that, it really is a perfect gem, in my estimation.
