A Charm Invests A Face


A Charm invests a face
Imperfectly beheld—
The Lady dare not lift her Veil
For fear it be dispelled—

But peers beyond her mesh—
And wishes—and denies—
Lest Interview—annul a want
That Image—satisfies—

great poem indeed, nice work
Great thinking. Where ever such oppression exists, naturally women should rise. I like lines in every sense.
A great poem on women empowerment and having relevance for today where world opinion is large.
