I'm just a bashful lady poet,
dainty if I'm anything;
so shy, so proper, so reserved,
composing my delicate renderings.

I never speak above a whisper,
a flower I am, so pale and pure;
modest, that's me, with skirts to my ankles,
fragile, obedient, slight and demure.

Not me.
Try Hedgewitch
or MZ!

All THREE of you Lovely Ladies send shivers down my spine!!
Shy, Impudent and Brassy...?
Sounds like The Slice Girls to me!
YOUR story was definately Fiction!
Loved your demure 55 Shay.
And you know when I see your Avatar I start to quiver like a Ninny. It's always an Honour to have you grace us groundlings with your ascerbic brilliance.
Thanks Sweetie...You as well, are Da Bomb!!!
Have a Kick Ass Week-End
You know how I really feel...:-)

It's those shy introverted types that are the scariest, they Lizzie Borden maybe? Of all the adjectives I think of when I think Fireblossom, shy is *not* one of them--laughin' all the way to the closet to hide from sharp implements and bald-making poems.

This is exactly how I would describe you. Yep. Exactly.

Mama Zen said...

Ha! Girl, you is slaying me!

Lydia said...

Hah! Oh yeah, you are a shy one, most definitely. This was funny on another level for me because we have been fostering a couple of kittens that we have named Bear and Shylo. Shy is the shyest kitten I've ever seen and Bear is a cuddle bear. We may keep both.

You would be PERFECT for the song "Shy" (my daughter at rehearsal): ha! Fiction indeed.
