Farewell To A Queen

Farewell To A Queen
Dark skies look more beautiful
When stars and the moon shine
Within its chest full of dreams,
And when the fragrance of flowers
Floats on light wings heavenward
The being comes down to find
A rare and rough gem that shines
Without polishing, without facets
A queen who has the memories, who
Already wears a crown from birth — 
A gentle queen, faithful, dutiful
The quintessence of nobleness
An example for all queens to be
A sovereign who knows, has learned
Through these opened inner abilities
And linkage to the magical spheres —
How to behave in the face of criticism,
The queen knows that nobody’s perfect
Thus she continues to bear that shiny smile  
Amidst difficulties and amidst scandals
She’s lion-hearted, beloved of so many
An iron fist in a velvet glove; petite, but lofty,
This queen knows that she has nothing to fear
For what walks beside her, what surrounds her
Has forever walked with the great queens —
The ancestral veil covers her, the knight protects her,
Thus farewell to thee, dearest queen
May you rest in peace in this astral necropolis,
See you soon, new star, in the bosom of a galaxy.

R.I.P Queen Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 - 8 September 2022)

I started to be fascinated by royal history when my grandma gave me a book about the history of France when I was in Grade 4 or 5; the stories of all these monarchs captivated me to the point that I kept a notebook filled with all the names of the historical figures I liked.

To write this little poem I inspired myself from the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom; I just hope that my poetic homage to the great queen Elizabeth II looks good.
