Sometimes I Feel Like Virginia Woolf – A Poem

(this photo may not show 😦 if not, look up  Annie Leibovitz, photographer) & I hope it’s linked proper)  Poem stands without photo, though…

Sometimes I Feel Like Virginia Woolf
(Upon Seeing A Leibovitz Photo of Queen Elizabeth @ 90)

I want to be that little girl
– not the one holding
the purse
of family secrets –
I want to be that little girl
smirking,
@ the right,
into a distant camera
knowing the camera
smiles
somehow brightly back at me.

    • 😛 It all makes me remember that old tv program “Queen For A Day”… I am a constant follower of the Windsor’s…their lives are right out there for all to see, a fish bowl without ‘A Room of One’s Own’ …so many of us know how difficult that can be.
