Wow! (inspired by Annika Wilmes)

Oh face of happy pride and blooming brow,
May all the world shine as your mirror now
And tilt to see the beauty of its sphere
In glowing chin and cheeks, and eyes so clear.
Such glance of fullest moon—not half as bright
As radiant you, nor casts such truer light.
The flower-face of day’s high-beaming sun
Not equal to the sweetness you have won,
And we, beholding, count our profits high
Who catch the eager joying in your eye.
Oh face of blooming pride and happy brow,
In justice we can only trumpet—Wow!
