We All Love Her

We All Love Her*
by C. Charles Bley

is She a leader

her high sense of inspire
Her great control
always — never expected

for She was sure
of one thing
not lost to the moment
She indeed

She always goes rain
coats and sun-glasses
Out in the streets The girl
from the country

happiness voice
from love arises
Her Truth
