I never knew what all the fuss was about,
until I saw her in the moon’s black and white rays.
I never knew that such elegance could pour out,
from a timeless age, bathed in hues of grey.
In an era before mine, she’s graced the silver screens,
lending her talent to the cinematic stage.
Was I born too late to appreciate those classic scenes?
I think not. I sense a growing fondness that just won’t fade.
She speaks with delicacy, a voice like a symphony,
I soak up each note, each tone of every word.
Captivated by her beauty, easily, visually,
But equally audibly, by what my ears have heard.
Those wide, brown eyes and such a lovely smile,
It’s clear how she stole many hearts decades before.
Adorably charming, alluring, and a natural, graceful style.
My goodness, Audrey…
they sure don’t make them like you anymore.
Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina (1954)
